Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

With Thanksgiving on my mind and the lingering feeling of still being too full from yesterday, I decided a pumpkin recipe was in order.  We received this recipe from a family friend and my older sister Jessie made them to take to Thanksgiving and they were delicious!!

~1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
~1 1/2 cups sugar
~1 cup pumpkin puree
~1 egg
~1 tsp vanilla
~2 1/2 cups flour
~1 tsp baking soda
~1 tsp baking powder
~1 tsp cinnamon
~1 tsp nutmeg
~1/2 tsp salt
~16 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar on medium speed with a mixer until fluffy.  Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla and beat until well blended.  In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients together (flour, soda, powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt).  Add this dry mixture to the wet pumpkin mixture and mix well.  Hand stir in the chocolate chips. Drop by heaping teaspoons 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 13-15 minutes or until lightly browned, but be sure to not over bake.  It makes roughly 3 dozen cookies and can also be topped with cream cheese frosting if desired.  🙂
