Inspired by my friend Christin, I have become an annual baker of Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. I made some last Sunday, and we'll likely finish them off today/tonight. MMMMMMMMMMMmmmmmmmarvelous!
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg*
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
- Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
- Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.
*I just started adding Nutmeg, and it really makes the cookies good, very pumpkin-piey. Yes, piey is a word. Well, now it is. Because I say so.
