Giant pumpkin cookies loaded with chocolate chunks that are sure to get you into the Fall spirit!
If you’ve stuck with us through this pumpkin filled ride, then thank you. We appreciate you. We are almost at the end of our pumpkin journey, so stick around just a little bit longer!
These pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are Autumn comfort dessert to the fullest. Giant chocolate chunk pieces inside a soft, warm pumpkin cookie. Excuse me, I need a moment to process.
I think I can speak for both Lauren and myself when I say that Autumn is our favorite time of the year, hands down. We just love everything about it to the point where we might actually be on the verge of an obsession. Guilty. The gourds! The crunchy leaves! The hot apple cider! WHEEEEE!
Autumn is also prime, pajama wearing weather! As soon as I get home I turn into a full blown grandma. Sweatpants. Giant sweater. Hair up. Blanket on. I didn’t choose the grandma life, the grandma life chose me. But let’s be honest, I would totally choose that life because it is the best way to live.
Autumn comes and goes so quick that we need to enjoy every moment of it while we can, hence the pumpkin overload. Last weekend, I decided to spend my morning baking all things pumpkin, and I LOVED EVERY SECOND OF IT. Did you see our baked pumpkin donuts with a pumpkin spice glaze!?
These cookies combine everything you love about pumpkin with the all time favorite classic chocolate chip cookie. We have also come to the realization the chocolate chunks will forever and always be better than regular chocolate chips. They just look better. I used an assortment of different shaped chocolate chunks making the whole experience even better! You can really use regular chocolate chips though if you want. We are chocolate chunk snobs, but you don’t have to be.
These cookies are great mostly because they are soft and gooey. Almost a cake like consistency. Some people like crispy cookies with no goo. However, we here like goo. The more goo the better. Goo. Goo. Goooooo. Are we making you uncomfortable? We are soft cookie lovers for sure. If its crunchy we don’t want it! Just kidding…we will still eat it. Cookies are life.
