Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

In all honesty, I made these because I made some more pumpkin cupcakes for dinner with my family and that left me with some leftover pumpkin puree. And also because I love chocolate chip everything.

And I'm going to keep this post super short because I've got to run back and finish baking, but if you have any pumpkin puree leftover from your Thanksgiving dinner, make these cookies. Seriously, I'm not a very big fan of pumpkin things, but these are probably my second favorite cookie that I make, right after my cranberry and dark chocolate oatmeal cookies.

The Ingredients (makes 1 dozen):
-1 cup all purpose flour
-1/2 tsp baking soda
-1/8 tsp salt

-1 tsp cinnamon
-1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

-1/4 cup butter, softened
-1/2 cup white sugar
-1/4 cup brown sugar

-1 egg
-1/4 cup pumpkin puree
-1 tsp vanilla extract
-1/2 cup chocolate chips

The Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Sift the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice together and set aside.
2. Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Then mix in the egg, puree and vanilla one at a time, mixing after each addition.
3. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet, stirring until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. The dough will be very sticky.
4. Drop the dough by the tbsp onto a lined baking sheet and flatten (like you would with oatmeal cookies) and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
5. Consume and enjoy!
