I am so ready for fall- cooler weather, scarves and plenty of pumpkin recipes. Especially pumpkin with chocolate chips. I don't know what it is about that combination but it is amazing. These cookies are a quick and easy way to enjoy those flavors.
Usually, I use dark chocolate chips when baking with pumpkin but I had milk chocolate chips on hand this time, so that's what I used. They added a nice sweetness to the cookies without being overpowering. These were very easy to make, I didn't even use a mixer. I just mixed them up by hand in a bowl. The only thing I should mention is that before baking, flatten the tops of the cookies a little. Otherwise, they don't quite cook in the middle.
I enjoyed these cookies warm out of the oven or cold out of the refrigerator. Either way, they were good and made me even more excited about fall!
