  • 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice*
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree , not pumpkin pie filling
  • 1 cup chocolate chips


  • Preheat the oven to 375F degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Whisk together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda & salt.
  • In a large bowl beat the butter and sugars until fluffy. Then mix in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Mix in the pumpkin puree, followed by the flour mixture.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Spoon the dough into balls about 1 - 1.5 tablespoons in size (I use a cookie scoop). Place 2 inches apart on the lined cookie sheets and flatten slightly.
  • Bake for 7-9 minutes, or until the tops look just set. Remove from the oven and optionally place a few chocolate chips on top of each.
