Tips and Variations:

Sweet chocolate is surrounded by soft tender pumpkin baked cookie perfection! The ingredient that makes these so amazing and quick is cake mix! Want to mix it up? Try these variations.

  • Add ins– Substitute semi-sweet chocolate chips for mini chocolate chips, milk or dark chocolate chips. Add in raisins, dried cranberries chopped nuts, pepitas or oats for extra flavor and/or texture (about ½ cup).
  • Cake Mix- Substitute spice cake mix for a more traditional pumpkin pie flavor, or add in 2 teaspoons of pumpkin spice to yellow or white cake mix for the classic flavor.
  • Lumps- It can be hard to get the lumps out of the cake mix. Sift the cake mix before adding in the pumpkin to get rid of clumps.
  • Egg- If you find your cookies are too dense you can add an egg to make it a bit lighter. It won’t be 3 ingredients anymore though.
  • Bake– Do not undercook these cookies. Make sure the edges start to brown and a toothpick comes out clean.

How to Store Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Store cookies on counter for up to 5 days, loosely wrapped with plastic wrap or foil. If placed in an airtight container, they may become sticky. You can pop them in the refrigerator for 7-8 days.
  • Freeze cookies that have been completely cooled in an airtight container or freeze proof bag for up to 3 months. Simply leave on counter to thaw. Pop into microwave for 10 seconds for a nice warm up.
