  • 1/2 Stick Unsalted Butter (Melted)
  • 2 Tbsp (20 gms) Light brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup (50 gms) Granulated Sugar
  • 3 Tbsp Pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 Cup All purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp Ground Nutmeg+Cloves+cardamom+all spice
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup Chocolate chips


  • 1. In a small bowl mix melted butter, white and brown sugar, pumpkin and vanilla until well combined. Set aside.
    2. In a separate medium bowl sift flour, baking powder, baking soda all the spices and salt. Mix it well to form a dough. Add in the chocolate chips (saving some for pressing on top after baking) and chill for about 20-30 minutes.
    3. In the meantime preheat your oven to 350 deg F and line a baking sheet with silicon mat of parchment paper.
    4. Now take the dough out of refrigerator and roll it into 6 balls. Flatten them and bake for around 11-13 minutes. The cookies will look very soft in the centers but don't over bake them.
    5. Take them out and press the remaining choc-chips on top for the looks! Allow them to cool down for about 20 minutes on the sheet. And keep on a wire rack to get even more chewier.


  1. If you find your pumpkin puree is a little too wet, blot it with a paper towel to get rid of some of the moisture.
  2. I love a lot of spices in my pumpkin cookies you can adjust the spices to suit your palate.
  3. You can chill the dough in refrigerator for upto 2 days. Allow it come to room temperature before forming those balls.
  4. Cookies stay fresh at room temperature for 5-7 days. Baked cookies freeze well for 2 months. Thaw in the refrigerator or at room temperature before enjoying!
