Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

We had a very rare night out last night and went to a Halloween party hosted by one of the husband’s good friends.  When I asked if I could bring anything, they suggested a dessert.  I wanted to do something a bit different that had the flavors of fall, and that was easy to eat with your hands.  Pumpkin, cookies and chocolate, can you really go wrong there?  The answer – no you cannot.  These cookies were delicious!  They are very soft and cakelike, my favorite cookie combination.  And you don’t need to just take my word for it…there were a ton of desserts at the party, and my cookies were gone within 30 minutes of arriving!  The other desserts were barely touched.  Just saying…

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 teaspoon milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

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.

Add vanilla and chocolate chips.

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.

  1. I have to bake a lot of cookies for a special event and I opened up a large can of pumpkin, last night. These cookies will use up some of the pumpkin and I am sure they are going to be a great success. Thanks.
