Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and spicesย in a large bowl. Meanwhile, in the bowl of your stand mixer, mix together butter and granulated sugar until well combined. Add in brown sugar and mix. Next add in eggs and vanilla while mixing. Lastly, mix in the pumpkin.ย Now add your dry ingredients into your stand mixer inย 4 parts, mixing just enough to combine. Toss in the chocolate chips and mix until evenly distributed. Place your cookie dough in the fridge forย 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 375F. Remove dough from refrigerator and place onto parchment paper lined baking sheets using tablespoons. Flatten a bit. Make sure to leave enough space for the cookies to spread. Bake forย 15-17 minutes total. I bakedย at 375F for the first half of the time, then finished baking at 350F.ย Cookies are done when edges are golden brown.
