What You’ll Need

Here are the ingredients you need to make these gorgeous pumpkin spice cookies! See the recipe card located at the bottom of the post for full instructions and details.

  • salted butter– For my cooking and baking, I generally use salted butter. Unsalted is fine as well.
  • granulated sugar– This fine sugar adds the sweetness to the cookies.
  • dark brown sugar– Dark brown sugar has more molasses than light brown sugar which gives it a deeper color and more prominent molasses flavor.
  • large eggs– For consistency, I always use large eggs for my cooking and baking.
  • all-purpose flour– All-purpose flour is the main dry ingredient in the cookies.
  • pumpkin pie spice– Pumpkin pie spice can be found in the spices section of the grocery store. It’s a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice.
  • baking soda– Baking soda helps the cookies rise during baking.
  • kosher salt– Kosher salt is a more coarse salt than table salt. I prefer using it in my cooking and baking.
  • milk chocolate chips– Any of your favorite chocolate chips work great in this cookie recipe.

How To Make Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies

Preheat Oven to 350 Degrees F. and line baking sheet with parchment paper. 

Brown Butter. Place butter in small skillet over medium low heat. Melt and swirl until butter is browned. Be patient, this is a little process. Can take up to 15 minutes. Keep a close eye on it, as it can burn once it starts to brown. Transfer to a heat proof bowl and let cool for 30 minutes before starting cookies.

Cream Brown Butter and Sugars. When butter is cooled slightly, pour into large mixing bowl. Add both sugars and mix until well combined.

Eggs and Vanilla. Stir in eggs and vanilla, mixing until well combined.

Dry Ingredients. Add flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Stir gently until flour is mixed in. Stir in chocolate chips. Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet, placing dough rounds about 1 inch apart.

Bake. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for 15 minutes before serving.

    Hi. These look delicious. I’m making them right now and realized there isn’t any vanilla in the ingredients but you say to add it in the instructions. How much vanilla should I put in?
