Honestly, I did not feel up to baking cookies this year. I'm SO glad I did though! These tasty little babies came out fantastic.
I stopped at the Dollar Store to pick up some cute holiday Christmas tins for my baking creation. People love food... especially homemade deliciousness like this.
The recipe made 60 cookies!!! I was able to fill all 5 tins, each with a dozen.
I found this recipe on AllRecipes.com...
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
- 1 1/2 cups butter (no substitutes), softened
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups quick-cooking oats
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars.
- Beat in the pumpkin, egg and vanilla.
- Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture.
- Stir in chocolate chips.
- Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
The cookies turned out to be moist and chewy because of the pumpkin. I give them 4 stars!
