Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Usually on Sundays, I get on a roll with cooking/baking. Yesterday, Chris and I determined that Sundays are for the Four F's...Faith, Family, Food, and Football (Can I get an Amen?!) I had made BBQ pulled chicken in the crockpot for dinner, which was amazing (if I do say so myself) and then decided to make a treat for Chris and the coaching staff. What better fall treat than pumpkin chocolate chip cookies? The recipe is super easy, like 'dump everything in a bowl and stir' kind of easy...and the cookies came out very "cake-like" which I love...almost tasted like pumpkin bread! Anyway, Chris was a fan...so that's all that matters, right?! :)

Here's what you need:


- 1 cup pumpkin

- 1/2 cup granulated sugar

- 1/2 cup brown sugar

- 1 egg

- 1/2 cup canola oil (I used vegetable oil, and they turned out just fine!)

- 2 cups flour

- 2 tsp baking powder

- 2 tsp cinnamon

- 1/2 tsp salt

- 1 tsp baking soda

- 1 tsp milk

- 1 T vanilla

- chocolate chips (however many you want!)


Preheat over to 350. In small box, mix together the pumpkin, sugars, egg, and oil - set aside. In larger bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Dissolve the baking soda in the milk, then mix with wet ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until combined. Add vanilla and chocolate chips - stir well. Drop 1-2 tablespoons of cookie batter/dough on sheet lined with wax paper. Bake for 10 minutes (no more, no less - this was the perfect amount of time!)...and ENJOY!
