Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Top Cookies

How many of you start dreaming of all things “pumpkin” when the leaves start changing color?

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Top Cookies

It’s not just me right? Whew … ok.  Now, on to my fall obsession: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Top Cookies.

I started making these last year when I spent several months obsessed with pumpkin.  I made Pumpkin Bread with Egg-Nog Cream Cheese Filling . . .  Slow Cooker Spicy Pumpkin Chili . . . and these amazing cookies.  Pumpkin overkill?  No such thing!

These cookies are light and cakey . . . spiced and pumpkiny . . . comforting and chocolatey.

It takes just a few minutes to whip them up thanks to using a spice cake mix.  Yup, yup.  I like quick and easy desserts, especially on game day.  I made them, most recently, last weekend while family and friends watched football in my living room.  Each time I pulled the pan from the oven, someone was there . . . waiting for fresh from the oven perfection.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffin Top Cookies
Recipe type: dessert
The worlds of cookies and muffins collide in this light, fall-inspired cookie.
  • 1 box of Spice Cake Mix
  • 1 15oz can of Pumpkin Puree (NOT pie filling)
  • 1 large Egg
  • 1 bag of Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix the cake mix and the pumpkin puree.
  3. Break open the egg and add it, folding it in till fully incorporated.
  4. Pour the chocolate chips into the mixture and carefully fold in.
  5. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Using a spoon, portion out the dough onto the cookie sheet in 1-2 tablespoon sized portions, leaving 1-2 inches between each cookie.
  7. Place into the oven and bake for 9-12 minutes or until the tops of the cookies are springy and bounce back when touched.
  8. Remove the pan from the oven and cool slightly on a wire rack before removing the cookies off the pan and serving.
Best served the day they are made; can be stored in an air-tight container but, like with pumpkin quick breads, they will get slightly sticky from the moisture of the pumpkin puree.
