thaKing and I made a huge batch of Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies last week to share with our neighbors to celebrate the arrival of their new son. Thanks for the recipe, Valerie at Up to Date! thaKing claims to not be a big pumpkin fan, but combine the gourd with chocolate chips, and needless to say there has been a request for more! This is so easy to make and delicious!
2 and a quarter cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ground cloves (I left this out just b/c I didn't have any on hand)
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 16 oz can of pumpkin
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips
In small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, all spices, and salt; set aside.
In large mixer bowl, beat butter and sugar till creamy. Add pumpkin and eggs and vanilla.
Gradually add flour mixture.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by spoonfuls on greased cookie sheet (I used Silpat)
Bake at 375 for about 18 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned.
Let sit 5 minutes on cooling rack
