Annual Tradition: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

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!

Make 'em!

  • 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)

  1. 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.
  2. Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
  3. 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.
