For this pumpkin cookie recipe, you will require:

  • Equipment: Non Stick Cookie Tray, or else baking paper and a cookie tray
  • Butter
  • Brown sugar
  • Pumpkin
  • Plain Flour
  • Bicarbonate of Soda
  • Egg
  • Chocolate Chips

Firstly in a roomy saucepan, melt butter with sugar.

It is important to take it off the heat as soon as the butter has melted to avoid burning the mixture.

Keep stirring till the mixture looks like a thick caramel sauce like in this picture.

Add in all the ingredients.

Here is the flour and bicarbonate of soda added to the caramel mixture. Add in the beaten eggs, too.

Toss in the pumpkin puree into the mixture.

Mix well. It will become a thick batter and dry enough that the dough/ batter mixture moves away from the side of the bowl.

Use a teaspoon to scoop a portion of doughy batter.

Place spoonfuls of the mixture onto the lined baking tray or on a non-stick sheet. Notice the space between the cookies. Allow about 3/4 inch expansion space.

Here they are, beautifully baked, fresh out of the oven.
