How to Make Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
In a bowl, combine your melted butter, sugar, vanilla and pumpkin with a hand mixer. You can also use your kitchen aid if you have one. I tend to useMix in the eggs and the milk until well blended.
In the same bowl, add in the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and pumpkin spice, mixing until combined.Fold the chocolate chips into the soft cookie dough batter. And yes, its supposed to be that soft! Trust me. 😉
Using a 1.5 TBSP measure, scoop out the cookie dough and place it onto a cookie sheet. Remember to give a good distance between the cookies as they will grow and spread while baking.
Then bake for about 8 minutes and allow them to cool on the sheet before removing.
How to Store Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
Like any other cookie, after they have cooled down and no longer warm, these cookies can be stored inside a tight-sealed cookie jar or stored inside a zipper topped bag. When properly stored, these cookies can last for several days- but I usually find that they are all eaten before reaching that point!
Do Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies Freeze Well?
With this recipe making so many tasty cookies, you may find that you want to freeze some for later. The good news is that these cookies freeze very well.
You can place them in a zipper topped bag and in the freezer until you want to eat them. Then simply remove however many cookies you want from the bag and allow a few minutes for them to come to room temperature- it shouldn’t take long!
Pro tip: Placing these cookies on a cookie sheet and freezing solid before placing them in a bag can help to prevent cookies from sticking together. While this isn’t always an issue with freezing cookies, it’s a good preventative measure because some varieties do enjoy forming together in the freezer.
