So good - Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe by The Party Teacher

Here’s a freebie for you: a recipe from my Charlie Brown Thanksgiving Party Plan.

My mother makes these each fall and they are coveted by all. (I believe my brother still receives a batch in a care package at least once a year.)

  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp salt

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins


  • Mix all ingredients together.

This is a great recipe to make with your kids. They can help level-off measurements and scoop the cookies. And because it makes so many cookies, it’s also a good choice if you want to take some to school and keep some at home.

You’ll have leftover golden raisins, which means it’s also a perfect time to use those to make my Aunt Alice’s bran muffins. (Get the recipe here.)
