How To Make The Best Pumpkin Cookies Ever With Only 3 Ingredients

Fall simply wouldn't be complete without whipping up a batch or three of these quick and easy cookies!

Occasionally, that link between a food and its rightful season seems so strong that it feels like one couldn’t exist without the other! For instance, my mom’s potato salad practically begs to be eaten off a paper plate outdoors on a hot summer day. That potato salad contains the spirit of summer, and likewise, a summer without potato salad is practically unthinkable! A similar principle of seasonality applies to the very fall-centric recipe I’ll be sharing with you today!

Every year, when autumn arrives and the leaves start changing color, my thoughts become occupied by one particular recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I first encountered this recipe back when I was producing a morning talk show in Salt Lake City called “Good Things Utah.” One autumn day, our cooking segment featured a guest chef who made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies using only three ingredients. Those cookies quickly became something of an obsession for the whole “Good Things Utah” crew! Our Executive Producer George liked them so much that he would bring batches of them to our remote shows to share with our viewers. (Ahh, good times! Miss you George!)

Because these cookies are such a seasonal favorite of mine, I thought I would share them with you today! They’re soft, moist, and full of spiced pumpkin flavor. And of course, it doesn’t hurt that you only need three ingredients to make them! So if you happen to have these ingredients on hand (which I always do, because you never know when a cookie emergency could strike!) you could have a batch of these cookies cooling on your countertop in under 20 minutes. Give these absurdly easy pumpkin cookies a try, and you’ll understand why the fall season would be incomplete without them!

Bake the cookies at 350°F for 10-12 minutes until just firm.
