Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Earlier this week, Cash had a play date with our friends Charley and Reagan. I thought it would be fun for them to do something fallish, so we made these pumpkin cookies. The kids had a blast, and really did a good job helping "mix" the ingredients.



Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup shortening (or butter)
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 cups flour
1/2 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, cream the sugar and shortening for 3-4 minutes. Mix in the egg, vanilla and pumpkin. In another bowl whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Add flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture. Mix just until combined. With a spoon, stir in the chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes.

I found this recipe over at One Charming Party. (I L*O*V*E that blog! Great party ideas.)

oh my gosh those look good! I think I even have all the ingredients for them....unless Kevin ate the chocolate chips again. :) I keep them in the freezer and they still disappear.
