  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2/3 cups firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted
  • 1 1/2 (187grams) cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate chips or *wafers (1/2 cup)
  • Flakey sea salt for garnish


  • In a medium bowl, add the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, sugar and melted butter. Whisk until smooth. Don’t be shy to really get in there and make sure it's super smooth.
  • In another medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, salt and pumpkin pie spice. Pour the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients, and using a spatula, mix it until you no longer see any speckles of flour.
  • Pour in the chocolate chips or wafers and fold them in until evenly disbursed.
  • Cover the dough with plastic wrap and transfer to the fridge for 1 hour. This will firm up the dough--it'll be super soft when you mix it all up!
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, scoop out six (2 ounce) cookie dough balls, spacing them about 4 inches apart (they will spread a bit). Transfer them to the oven to bake for 11 to 13 minutes. These cookies will be puffy when they come out of the oven but will fall as they cool.
  • Repeat with the remaining cookie dough. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature.


Tips and Tricks
  • Weigh your flour for perfect chocolate chip cookies. I like to weigh my flour for cookies because I've found that even 5 to 10 grams more of flour really affect the final cookie.
  • These semi-sweet chocolate wafers are delicious and they're from Guittard.
  • To freeze these cookies, follow my post on How to Freeze Cookie Dough!
