Heat the oven to 350 degrees.
Spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
Using a mixer, beat the butter until smooth.
Mix in the white and brown sugars, a little at a time, beating until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then mix in the vanilla and pumpkin.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and soda, salt, and spices.
Slowly beat the flour mixture into the batter in thirds, mixing well.
Stir in chocolate chips by hand.
Scoop the dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheets.
Bake for 18 minutes, or until cookies no longer appear moist, and spring back when lightly pressed.
Remove from oven and let rest on cookie sheets 1-2 minutes before removing to wire cooling racks.
