Crispy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Crispy and heartwarming, that is exactly what these cookies taste like!   


I have eaten MANY pumpkin cookies, and I don’t prefer when they are really gooey or cakey,

I like them crispy.

If you like a crispy edge and chewy center, these are THE perfect combo.

I love the pumpkin flavor, it really kicks chocolate chip cookies into a fun comfy cookie PERFECT for the cooler weather.

I’m happy to say I have cans of it in my pantry all year long!

the best Crispy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies from @createdbydiane


  1. I ate it at the restaurant and enjoyed it. I tried many times but failed. Today saw your guide I learned a lot and drawn many useful things. I believe this time I will succeed. Thanks a lot!

  2. Oh, that’s my favourite cookies and finally I have a recipe for them. This Christmas I bought some ready made cookies and was totally disappointed.

  3. They turned out under-cooked and greasy. Any help would be very welcome, as the dough is in the fridge waiting…

    1. Undercooked, check your oven temp, raise it if you feel it’s off or too low by 25 degrees. Greasy? double check your measurements, if you feel they were correct, add some flour as needed. I did not find them to be greasy at all, I use parchment paper to bake on and thick bakery style baking sheets, baking pans can really have a lot to do with how your cookies will turn out, thinner pans tend to puddle “grease” butter as they heat really fast and melt the butter fast, double insulated pans will give your undercooked cookies or dark bottoms too. Hard to tell without more info. feel free to email if you want to be specific to what you have tried, also what your oven temp is with a thermometer (not just what the oven temp says it is) what types of pans, if you altered the recipe or used other types of ingredients, flour, etc. and I can help troubleshoot better for great results. I have a guide for cookie baking if you want more tips you can find it here

    1. Yes, you can add salt, I most often bake cookies with salted butter and have mentioned this numerous times. I always suggest using the butter/salt you are comfortable with. starting off with 1/2 teaspoon of salt, increasing to 1 teaspoon if you prefer (and depending on how many cookies the batter makes.

  4. I made the cookies. Doubled them actually. They aren’t crispy though. Good but not crispy. I don’t like to fool with temps. on ovens especially when baking. But I guess next time I will up the temp. They are soft and for sure my husband will love them. I scooped them and put them on a plate in the fridge and then on the pan. So I will make them again.Lots of flavour. Made dog cookies with pumpkin and wanted to find something to use up the rest of the pumpkin.. So made these. I would recommend the recipe .

  5. Nice recipe- but pretty sweet- with pumpkin, sugar and chocolate chips. Next time I think I will cut the sugar amounts in half. If you don’t care for overly sweet cookies, I think you can cut down on sugar and these cookies would still be awesome.

    1. Thanks Diane! My kids go crazy over sugar, so just trying to find ways to cut it a little. I didn’t know that the sugar makes it crispy! Interesting! The cookies are delicious! We ate almost all of them this weekend! Haha
