  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin-pie spice
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 15 oz can pure pumpkin puree
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, pumpkin-pie spice, and salt; set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixer, until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg; beat until smooth.
  • With mixer on low speed, alternately add flour mixture and pumpkin puree a little at a time. Mix just until combined (do not over mix).
  • Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto two baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, then rotate the cookies in the oven to bake evenly.
  • Bake an additional 8 - 12 minutes or until edges are golden and cookies puff up.
  • Immediately transfer cookies to wire racks, and cool completely.
  • When cookies have cooled, set them (still on rack) over a baking sheet or waxed paper.
  • Melt the chocolate by placing it in a glass bowl over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water, stirring to make sure it is melting evenly.
  • Remove from heat and pour chocolate into a plastic bag. Snip off a corner and pipe chocolate over cookies.
  • Refrigerate for about 20 minutes or until chocolate is firm.
