Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

One of the nice things about fall is the pumpkin recipes that come out.  I was looking for a "fallish" cookie to take to a Harvest dinner last weekend.  I found this easy recipe.  The added chocolate chips I thought might help sell the pumpkin.  Can you believe there are people out there that does not like pumpkin?  These are very good and have the soft consistency of a muffin. Give them a try this fall, I think you will like them.
This recipe calls for pumpkin pie spice.  If you don't have any at home you can make your own.  I will include the recipe at the bottom of the post for you.
In a small bowl add 1 cup pumpkin.  You can use canned or homemade.
Add 1/2 cup canola oil
Whisk the oil and pumpkin together.
Add 1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar.  Mix the pumpkin with the sugars.
In another bowl add 2 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Then mix 1 teaspoon milk with 1 teaspoon baking soda.  Mix until the baking soda has dissolved.
Add that to the dry ingredients.
1 Tablespoon vanilla
Add the pumpkin mixture into the dry ingredients.
Mix well.
Add 2 cups mini chocolate chips
Mix well.  Look at all those chips.
Use a scoop and scoop out the dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.
They are ready for the oven.  Place in a preheated 350 oven.   Bake for 10 minutes.
Fresh from the oven.  They smell so good.

  1. I realized this morning that I had not included the recipe for pumpkin pie spice. So here goes.
    3 Tablespoons ground cinnamon, 2 teaspoons ground ginger, 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg, 1 1/2 teaspoons ground allspice, 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves.
    Store leftover in a plastic container for later.
