Not me. At least not when I have a pumpkin cookie nearby.
I’ve been making these cookies since around third grade, but a few years ago I lost the recipe. Since then I’ve been trying various versions, none of which lived up to the original. Inspired by the cold snap I thought I’d give it another go. I made a few alterations to an existing online recipe and Eureka!! I finally managed to recreate my all time favorite fall treat.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
COMBINE flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and ginger in medium bowl. Beat shortening and granulated sugar in large mixer until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin, eggs and vanilla extract; beat until blended (mixture will look curdled). Gradually add flour mixture into pumpkin mixture and beat at low speed until combined. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are just starting to brown.
