Using stand mixer, cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar on low. Next add the pumpkin puree, egg, and vanilla extract until smooth. Gradually mix in the dry ingredients. Add the chocolate chips and turn off mixer once chips have been well incorporated.

Scoop desired dough onto parchment lined baking sheet. Place in oven for 13-18 minutes, until slightly browned and just set (or desired doneness). Place baked cookies onto cooling rack for at least 8 minutes.


In the photo above, the chocolate chips were placed on top of the dough prior to baking since I completely forgot to mix them in.
