Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are the best fall cookie recipe. We are all about pumpkin when the leaves start to change, aren’t we? These cookies are like tiny little pumpkin pies with chocolate and they are so good. Make a batch of these with a warm pumpkin spice latte and you are in fall heaven.

Cookie Recipes are a staple here, especially when Autumn comes into town. I get the urge to bake every time the weather turns cool. These cookies are some of my favorite.

The combination of chocolate with pumpkin is delightful. I feel like chocolate gets overlooked in the fall because we love pumpkin spice so much. I for one though, will not let chocolate be forgotten. With pumpkin, brown sugar, molasses and chocolate chips, these cookies are so dang good.
