Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkins are everywhere now that Fall is here so I thought I would try making something super good with this good for you veggie.  Scott bought a huge bag Halloween candy last week so we've had chocolate in the house (or we at least we did:) and I thought these cookies would be the perfect thing to make on a chilly Sunday. 

These come out almost cake-like (think muffin tops) so I suggest doing what I did I grind up the chocolate so you don't have huge chunks. I liked the way the ground up chocolate was in every bite and was subtle making the cookies not overly sweet but still really good. 


Makes about 18 cookies

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 cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon whole milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cups milk chocolate finely chopped (I threw three Hershey's bars into a Bullet!)


1. Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt.
2. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
3. Add vanilla and chocolate.
4. Drop by spoonful on parchment paper covered cookie sheet and bake at 350°F for approximately 12 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.
