Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
You know how sometimes things are so good that you can't stop eating them, and after a while you wish you had never made them because they just keep calling your name...and even if you made them to give away or take to your future mom-in-law's house for Thanksgiving you just sit there and keep eating them? That's what these cookies are to me. The night I made them I ate 5 of them. The next day two more, and about 10 more over the course of Thanksgiving.


  • 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 (or more, if you're me)


  1. 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.
  2. Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
  3. 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.
