These are the perfect cookies to keep around the house for snacks, add to lunchboxes, or serve at a fall party.

Even better, they are so easy to make that you won’t mind making a new batch when everyone eats them!

Chewy Pumpkin Cookies

When you add pumpkin to the cookies, they will be softer and have the best texture.

One tip, though. Make sure that you use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. They are easy to get mixed up! Pumpkin pie filling is spiced and sweetened and will make the cookies taste too sweet.

Otherwise, all the other ingredients are easy to find and easy to use!

In fact, these pumpkin cookies are so easy to make that it’s a great recipe for kids to make together.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Supplies

If you have ever made cookies at home, you probably already have all the supplies that you need.

Here is what I suggest you have before you start:

  • Cookie Sheets
  • Parchment Paper
  • Medium Microwave-Safe Bowl
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Whisk
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Medium Cookie Scoo[
  • Flat Spatula

You’ll also need some measuring cups and spoons and a place for the cookies to cool off.

Since this recipe makes very soft cookies, I suggest letting them cool on parchment paper that directly on your countertop or a cutting board, not a wire rack.

How To Store Homemade Cookies

Homemade cookies don’t have preservatives in them, so can you keep them at room temperature? Yes you can store homemade cookies on the counter or in the pantry. They might not last as long as store-bought cookies, though.

Keep your cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

How do you keep pumpkin cookies soft?

My favorite way to keep the cookies from getting stale or crunchy is to add the heel of a loaf of bread to the container with the cookies.

I also suggest that you place parchment paper in between layers of cookies in the container. Otherwise, they might stick together.

These cookies are easy to freeze, too. Wrap each cookie in plastic wrap and store them in a freezer safe food storage bag. They will stay fresh in the freezer for up to six months.
