~Pumkin Chocolate Chip Cookies~

You know what I love about Fall? 1) Halloween - I loooove to dress up! 2) My birthday is in October, and in my family we usually end up celebrating more of a birthweek or a birthmonth, so that's always good. 3) Usually the weather is cool enough to wear my fave sweaters & boots, but really you never know what you're going to get in Utah. And 4) the food that is in "season" for Fall! I can't get enough tasty soups, squash, comfort foods, and let's not forget the pumpkin flavored desserts! I know, I know, you can get pumpkin cookies and breads all year long, and I do, but this is the time of year when they shine - when they truly stand out in all of their delicious pumpkin glory.
I found this recipe last year, before I was in the habit of citing all of my sources, so I don't remember exactly where I got this one. I do know I found it online (broader than broad, i know hahaha).
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
From somewhere in cyberspace

1 c. unsalted butter, softened
1 c. white sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. canned pumpkin puree
3 c. flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
2 c. milk chocolate chips
beat butter until smooth. beat in sugars, a little at a time until mixture is light & fluffy. beat in eggs one at a time, then mix in vanilla & pumpkin. In a separate large bowl, mix dry ingredients. slowly beat flour mixture into the batter in thirds. stir in the chips. scoop onto sprayed cookie sheet in heaping tablespoons. bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, or until brown around the edges. cool on wire rack.

These look YUM! I've never made an official cookie for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I usually do a Weight Watchers recipe that is 3 ingredients and more cake-like. Hm, wonder what the flavor difference would be!?

So I have been wondering why you haven't updated your blog for so long then I remembered this cooking blog and how many great recipes I got from it in the past. My cooking skills are somewhat lacking right now. My poor husband. I love to cook but have a hard time keeping ingredients and finding doable recipes! You definitely have a an amazing talent and I am going to mooch off here more often!
