Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
The weather here never ceases to amaze me.  This time last week, my daughters field hockey game was cancelled due to excessive heat… Then within a couple of days it started raining and we’ve had high’s in the 60’s all week!  Near 100 to 60 in one week- crazy!!

With the cooler weather has come the inescapable need to bake something!! I seriously tried to resist, but that can of pumpkin in the pantry was calling my name.

So I made my families favorite Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.  It’s funny, a couple of years ago I was craving cookies and needed to use up some canned pumpkin left over from Thanksgiving. So I flipped through my cookbooks and found this recipe. I made them on a “whim” and my kids SCARFED them down in a day!  I was a bit shocked they usually don’t like this type of cookie.

I made them when they were at school yesterday.  I couldn’t resist, with the cool crisp wet weather it feels like fall here.  They were pretty excited when they got home. Which made me feel I need to do stuff like that more often….

Here’s the recipe- now to hide the cookies, so there are some left for tomorrow!

    Oh my, they look scrumptious! It’s such a shame but we don’t have canned pumpkin here in England, just the fresh, and I keep seeing lots of lovely recipes!

    For me, this time of year is all about apples! We have a huge orchard nearby. They have the best cider, apple butter, etc.etc.etc. Legend even has it that Johnny Appleseed planted the first trees himself!

    That said, I think I’m still going to run home and try out this recipe. Thanks for sharing!
