Classic chocolate chip cookies get a fall update by mixing in pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice. Not only are these pumpkin cookies even more flavorful than regular chocolate chip cookies, they're also oh-so-soft and cakelike. Use chocolate chunks for big gooey bites of chocolate or opt for mini chocolate chips to ensure a bit of chocolate in each bite.

Love that this recipe combines whole-wheat pastry flour and all-purpose flour. The pastry flour creates and delicate texture that you don't usually get in baked goods when using whole-wheat flour, and the chocolate chunks are a delightfully sweet addition! Read More
