Ben's Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin cookies, freshly baked, cooling on my counter.

A really nice recipe for soft, tasty pumpkin cookies. I adapted it from one I found on Ben Overmyer's website with a few modifications.

This recipe is scaled to make around 50 cookies and takes about 1 hour.



  1. Combine all ingredients except chocolate chips. The resulting dough should be noticeably softer and wetter than normal cookie dough.
  2. Seal in a plastic bag and let rest in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes; preferably overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  4. Mix chocolate chips into the dough.
  5. Cover a pan with parchment paper. Spoon out dough into medium-size balls, roughly 2 inches apart.
  6. Bake 15 minutes in the middle rack.
