Happy Fall y'all, and pumpkin season. Is a pumpkin a fruit or vegetable? Although it tastes a bit more like a veggie in it's more organic form, it's actually a fruit. Pumpkin mixes and bakes up nice in pie, breads, cookies and more. Cookies.. October is Cookie Month!  But sometimes you just don't feel like baking cookies, but you have a cookie dough craving. Here's a recipe I ran across that should do the trick, even take care of a needed chocolate fix.  Or scroll down for an even BIGGER CHOCOLATE Fix w/ the Chocolate Covered Cookie Dough Oreos!  Recipes from Like Mother Like Daughter.

Edible Pumpkin Cookie Dough 


  • 1 TBS butter (softened, unsalted )
  • 1 TBS granulated white sugar
  • 2 TBS brown sugar
  • 1 TBS pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5-6 TBS all purpose flour **
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon (to taste - add more just before the chocolate chips if you think the flavor isn’t enough)
  • 1/8 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 TBS chocolate chips


  • In a small bowl mix together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar.
  • Add in the pumpkin puree and vanilla extract and stir it all together.
  • Mix in 5 Tablespoons of the flour, the salt, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice. (If the dough is still too wet and soft, add in more flour 1 teaspoon at a time)
  • Taste the cookie dough and see if you need more cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice.
  • Mix in the chocolate chips and enjoy.

Option: Dipped in melted chocolate and put in the frig to set, makes for yummy Chocolate Pumpkin Cookie Dough Balls!  Extra chocolate fix .. FIXED! 


**The FDA warns against eating raw flour. You can buy and use heat treated flour, or cook your own flour in the microwave or oven. Because this is such a small amount of flour it should only take about 30 seconds to 1 minute to get it hot in the microwave. Then let it cool for a bit, or it may melt your chocolate chips.
