cookie, anyone?

we were last-minute invited to a halloween party. i volunteered to bring cookies (since i was dying to try out the pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipe i'd found), so while we passed out candy to the kiddies (and wow, do they show up early now. our first ones were at 5:30!) i baked a batch of these wonderful cookies. the texture was something i'd never had in a cookie before - very cake-like. it was interesting and quite frankly, perfect for a pumpkin cookie. highly recommended.

i was inspired by dishing up delights to try this recipe.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup pumpkin
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup canola oil (i used vegetable and it worked just as well)
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking poder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp milk
1 cup chocolate chips
1 tsp vanilla

preheat oven to 375 degrees. dissolve baking soda in milk and set aside. in large bowl, whisk together pumpkin, sugar, oil, vanilla and egg.

in a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and then stir in the baking soda mixture and then the chocolate chips. spoon onto a cookie sheet, and bake 12-15 min until done.

I am so happy you tried these and liked them! I agree, the texture is not typical, but I think it works well for this combination.

These look gorgeous. Even though it's coming into summer here I'm on quite a pumpkin kick - they're so cheap and versatile! Never would have thought to make them into cookies though, will have to give these a go sometime :D
