  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 1 cup light brown sugar, packed

  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1 cup mini marshmallows


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Cream together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a large mixer until the batter is light and fluffy. To the creamed mixture, add the pumpkin puree, eggs, and vanilla extract. Mix until everything is well blended. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and ground spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves) in a separate bowl.

Gradually combine the dry and wet ingredients, mixing until a soft cookie dough forms.Fold in the semi-sweet chocolate chips, micro marshmallows, and crumbled graham crackers until uniformly distributed. Drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each cookie using a cookie scoop or a spoon.

Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown, and the centers are set.

Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack to cool fully.
