Feature: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies - Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe Variation

Image: The Cookie Elf

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are a fun and easy variation on the classic chocolate chip cookie recipe – a perfect drop cookie that allows you to use pumpkin puree.

Many pumpkin cookie recipes produce cake-like cookies. This one is different. The credit goes to two simple steps: melting the butter and replacing the eggs with pumpkin puree.

The result is a wonderful chewy pumpkin cookie, rather than a cake-like cookie. Plus, this recipe is easy because it is mixed entirely by hand. There's no need to get out the electric mixer!

Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 8-10 minutes
Makes about 3-4 dozen cookies
