Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

ARE THE BEST!!! seriously- TO DIE FOR. and i usually only make them in the fall- but husband likes them a lot, so i make them when he wants them. And of course- he comes home the other night and says "Hey, we ( as in YOU) need to make pumpkin cookies so I can take them to work."

right... i'll get right on that.lol

so i made them today. And while i'm shoving my face of all this wonderful goodness (and an extra butt cheek to boot), I thought i'd share this wonderful recipe so all you can join in the fatness with me. trust me... you'll thank me once you have them.
(and i guess this means you need to make them too Jamie! :) )


Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies:

1 C butter shortening
2 C sugar
2 tsp Baking Powder
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
4 C flour
2 eggs
2 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp all spice (optional, i never use it)
2 C pumpkin ( i just use an entire small can of it)
1 package chocolate chips

Mix everything together and drop good sized balls on cookie sheet. cook at 350 for 8-11 min. Edges must be golden brown to be done.

now.... i've undercooked them tons of times- but i've never overcooked them. I typically put them in for about 13-15 minutes because i want no gooey at all. so just keep an eye on them. i've had one oven cook perfectly at 8 minutes and my oven now cooks for 15 min. and barely gets them to the point of non-gooeyness. :)
now.... you can all be jealous that I"m eating mine and not making them anymore. and when you are eating yours... i'll just come over and eat them with you!

What are you doing Saturday? (Or even Friday night?) Trying to either go to a crop on Friday and/or lunch with girlfriends on Saturday.

I love pumpkin chocolate chip anything, I will have to try this recipe. I have one for muffins that calls for whole wheat flour and it is awesome.
