3 Steps - Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Preparation: Preheat the oven to 375F/190C

Step 1: Cookie Dough

Melt butter in a saucepan with the brown sugar.

Take care to take the pan off the heat as soon as the butter's melted to avoid burning the mixture.

The mixture will turn into a thick smooth caramel sauce, just like in this picture.

Add the beaten egg and mix till it is well blended in.

Toss in the remainder of the ingredients, but only HALF of the chocolate chips.

Toss in the pumpkin puree into the mixture.

Toss in HALF only of the chocolate chips.

The cookie dough will be dry and floury to start with, but as you combine it soon become a homogenous doughy batter.

Step 1: Refrigerate

Place it in the refrigerator for at least half an hour to cool. The objective it to cool the dough so that when the remainder of the choc chips are added, they won't melt. We want the chips to retain their shape as we are, afterall, making chocolate chip cookies.

Step 3: Bake

When cool, scoop a portion of cookie dough with a teaspoon and place a neat round onto the cookie sheet.

Allow about 3/4 inch expansion space between the cookies.

Bake for 15 minutes.

Fresh out of the oven - Don't they look sensational!

If you'd like them harder in texture, just bake them for a little longer.


Be sure to purchase the type of chocolate chip that will hold its shape while baking.

For easy baking recipes, I recommend non-stick cookie sheets, so as to save time in greasing and lining baking tins.

For this recipe, you will require pumpkin puree. Either use a canned product or if you'd like to learn how to make pumpkin puree, just click to take you to the tutorial. Be certain to stew the pumpkin in sugared water.

Generally, the proportions are 1 pound/500 grams of fresh uncooked fruit to produce 1 cup of puree.

It is important that the stewed fruit is drained well or your pumpkin cookies will be soggy.

For a variation, use stewed pieces of pumpkin rather than puree so as to have the contrast in colors.
