#84 - Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Originally, we had planned on making two batches of cookies for Halloween. Only one made it in time for the Monster Mash Bash, but since these cookies were not Halloween-specific (more fall-specific) we figured we'd make them now.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

From Food Network These are pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, so be sure you have pumpkin puree, chocolate chips, and the rest of these cookie ingredients. These were kind of fun to make because you combine a lot of things that smell like the holidays. That's probably the cinnamon and nutmeg. But even though it smells like pumpkin pie, you're still making chocolate chip cookies. And that's fun. These cookies were really good. They were fluffy and moist, and unlike some chocolate chip cookies that flatten out and get extra crispy, the pumpkin kept the whole thing light and delicious.

The biggest problem was that the recipe was that it made like a thousand cookies. We froze half of the cookie dough, and we still had plenty of these. The whole batch makes 60! If you like pumpkin pie and you like chocolate chip cookies, you'll like these.
