Pumpkin Love: Cookies

Cookies are my favorite sweet treat--and these are perfect to get you in the mood for fall!


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Ingredients:

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter (1stick), softened
1 cup of pumpkin puree
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions:

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt in medium bowl.  Beat the sugar and butter in a larger mixer bowl until well blended.  Then beat in the pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract until smooth.  (I just beat by hand--I was too lazy to get my mixer out!) Gradually beat in the flour mixture. Drop a rounded spoonful onto a lightly greased baking sheet.  Bake for 15 to 18 minutes.


Enjoy with a cool glass of milk or a warm cup of coffee!
