Makes 18 – 20 Cookies


– ½ cup Earth Fare Butter (room temperature)
– ⅓ cup Earth Fare Organic Cane Sugar
– ⅔ cup Earth Fare Organic Light Brown Sugar
– 1 Earth Fare Cage-Free Egg
– 1 tsp Natural Vanilla Extract
– ⅓ cup Earth Fare Pure Canned Pumpkin
– 1¾ cup Earth Fare All-Purpose Flour
– 1 tsp Earth Fare Baking Soda
– ½ tsp Earth Fare Sea Salt
– 1 tsp Earth Fare Ground Cinnamon
– ½ tsp Earth Fare Ground Ginger
– ¼ tsp Earth Fare Ground Nutmeg
– ¼ tsp Ground Clove
– ¾ cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips


  1. Cream together butter and sugars until smooth. Add egg and vanilla extract, mix to incorporate. Then add in pumpkin purée, mix until just combined (do not over mix).
  2. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and spices.
  3. Add dry ingredients to the wet and mix until just combined, then fold in chocolate chips. Dough should pull away from the sides on the bowl.
  4. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 – 2 hours.
  5. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350° F. Line sheet pans with parchment paper.
  6. Use two large tablespoon size scoops or a 2.5 oz. cookie scoop to portion the dough. Roll into balls and place onto parchment lined sheet — do not press down. Place 6 cookies per sheet pan, spacing out evenly between dough balls.
  7. Bake cookies for 8 – 10 minutes or until lightly golden brown on edges.
  8. Allow to rest on baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving to cooling rack. Cool completely and store in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
