  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

  2. In another bowl, combine pumpkin puree, egg, melted butter, sugar, and vanilla. Whisk together.
  3. Pour wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and mix until everything is combined and dough has an even consistency.
  4. Fold in chocolate chips. Chill dough in fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Before baking, preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  6. Using a heaping tablespoon or small cookie scoop, portion the dough out onto the prepared cookie sheet, leaving room in between each cookie. Gently press down with your hand to flatten each cookie a bit.
