pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

"Damn these cookies to hell."

That's the comment I read that made me want to bake these cookies.

And I have to agree with whomever typed that sentence. These cookies are hellishly delicious.

I have made these twice this past week. The second time I doubled the recipe and mixed it up with adding semi-sweet chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. So, so good.

Another reason I wanted to make these cookies is that they aren't the ol' made from a box of cake mix. From scratch is where it's at.

And because I'd much rather eat these than spend time trying to take a picture of them, I don't have any photos to showcase the tasty treats. Just google 'pumpkin chocolate chip cookies' if you need a visual.

But trust me, you want to make these and then eat all of them.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

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

Preheat oven to 350 and grease cookie sheets.

1. Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil and egg in bowl. Mix together. In separate bowl, combine together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.

2. Dissolve the baking soda with milk and stir into pumpkin mixture. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and combine well.

3. Add vanilla and chocolate chips.

4. Drop by generous spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for approximately 9 mins.

((the cookie scooper gadget thingy doesn't work very well with this dough. it's a little on the wet side and just gets stuck inside. i just used a cereal spoon and plopped down about 3 tablespoons of dough for each cookie.))
