I love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate. These cookies pack a lot of flavor into a single bite or two. In the past, I made pumpkin spice cookies using pumpkin pudding mix, but I wanted to find a cookie with a more prominent pumpkin flavor. These fit the bill!
I used milk chocolate chips in these cookies, but you could use bittersweet chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, or even cinnamon chips.
