This is a one-bowl recipe, so to get started, use a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl) to mix the light brown sugar and melted butter.
While continuing to mix, add in the pumpkin puree, egg yolk, and vanilla extract.
Blend in the flour, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and baking soda until all ingredients are incorporated and a soft dough forms.
Turn off the mixer and toss in a portion of the chocolate chips. Use a spatula gently fold the chips into the dough.
Use a cookie scoop to scoop up some dough, then release the dough into a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Gently press a few chocolate chips in the tops of the dough.
