Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Its getting close to thanksgiving, and the pumpkins are in season. My sister and I have had a long love of pumpkin and chocolate, and these cookies sounded too good to pass up.  My sister showed me the recipe, from a blog she reads called the A Merry Mishap. These cookies don’t take long, and don’t require a lot of ingredients, they are perfect for a quick homemade treat!

2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour

1 teaspoon of baking soda

1 teaspoon of baking powder

1 teaspoon of cinnamon (grounded)

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (grounded)

1/2 teaspoon of salt

3/4 cup of butter, room temperature

1/4 cup of butter flavored shortening

1/2 cup of sugar

1/2 cup of brown sugar

1 egg

1 cup of canned pumpkin puree

1 egg

1 teaspoon of vanilla

1 package of milk chocolate chips (or if you want something a little more bitter, semisweet work well also)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Farenheit, 175 degrees Celsius

1. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.

2. In a standing mixer (or handheld) mix together the butter, sugar, and shortening until creamed.

3. Add the pumpkin, egg, and vanilla. Mix until combined.

4. Add the dry mixture, once combined add chocolate chips.

Bake in oven for 11 minutes.

I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures of the final product, they got eaten too fast!

Hope your having a great sunday, I got to get back to watching Candyman… scary!
