Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

My favorite fall treat by far is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. I discovered them about 10 years ago when my sister was trying out recipes and made them for our family. Ever since then, my whole family has loved these awesome treats! Sometimes we will even make them at Christmas and give them out to friends and family. I love these cookies year-round, but there is something special about the fall that makes these cookies especially appealing. After eating a half dozen of these in one sitting (I know, oink oink!), I am ready to carve that pumpkin sitting on my front porch!


1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon milk
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
Mix in a large bowl, pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla. Blend well.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking soda. Stir into pumpkin mixture, add the milk. Blend well. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Use teaspoon to drop cookies on baking sheet. Bake 8 - 10 minutes.

*NOTE: Do not over cook these! Check frequently!
