Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cake-like pumpkin cookies are another family favorite...especially in the Fall! It never fails, when the leaves start changing and days start getting cooler my family starts asking for these cookies and I’m happy to oblige!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

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 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, egg and vanilla. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon, and salt. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well; stir in chocolate chips. Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown.
Note: These cookies don’t “stack” well, so make sure to put a sheet of wax paper or plastic wrap between layers.

A big cold glass of milk and your cookies would taste good about now! Thanks for sharing the recipe I will need to bake some for my grandchildren, especially the college boys in a surprise treat box in the mail!

I don't know that these would mail very good, Barb. They are very soft and moist and tend to stick to each other. All of the other cookie recipes that I have posted so far do mail well. In fact, I mailed all of them to my son at one time or another while he was deployed in Iraq and they made the trip just fine...that's two weeks in a mail bag!
