Pumpkin-Chocolate chip cookies (to die for)

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are a few things I'm known for. These cookies are one of them. Because they're made with pumpkin, they are softer, cakey cookies. If you like them crunchy, as I do, stick them in the freezer. Perfection.

Pumpkin-Chocolate chip cookies

1/2 c. butter, softened
1 c. sugar
1 egg
1 c. canned pumpkin
1 t. vanilla
2.5 c. flour (I use half white and half whole wheat)
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
.5 t. salt
1 t. nutmeg
1 t. cinnamon
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix first 5 ingredients together. Mix dry ingredients minus chips and then gradually add to wet. Stir in chips. Bake at 350 (F) for 15-25 minutes. Note that they don't spread much, so keep them on the small-t-medium side or they'll take forever to cook through.

Enjoy!
