Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly spray with non-stick spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugars, vanilla and pumpkin puree.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder and baking soda.
Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture and stir until just combined. Add in the chocolate chips, stir to distribute, and place the batter in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
When ready to bake, use a small 1-tablespoon scoop to remove dough. If you don't have a cookie scoop, simply grab a small spoonful of batter. Roll into a small ball, then place on the prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly. Continue with remaining batter, leaving a 1 inch border around the cookies.
Bake for 9-11 minutes until just set. Remove from oven, let cool slightly, then place on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
