I don't like pumpkin foods. It all started when I had my first taste of pumpkin pie and then had the stomach flu the next day. But last Thanksgiving I was in charge of the desserts. I made an apple pie but I felt like I had to make something pumpkin-ish for the holiday. I found this recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies. They are SO good. They are so soft and chewy, sort of cake-like...just amazing. I've had probably about 14 in the last two days. Make them!
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
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
In a medium bowl, combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Combine the baking soda with the milk and stir in.
Combine the flour mixture to pumpkin mixture. Then add the vanilla and chips.
Drop spoonfuls onto a greased cookies sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.
