Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

As much as I love seasonal festive recipes, I'm not a huge fan of things that are overly "pumpkin" this time of year. Which is probably why I prefer pumpkin cheesecake over pumpkin pie because it's not an overwhelming pumpkin taste. So, when I came across this recipe on Pinterest I knew I had to make it, but was nervous that it may be too pumpkin-y. I was pleasantly surprised that not only were the cookies delish and the pumpkin taste wasn't overwhelming, but they were soft and chewy.
 Ingredients
1 cup of pure pumpkin
1/2 cup of vegetable oil
1 cup of sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. of vanilla
1 tsp. of baking soda
2 tsp. of baking powder
2 tsp. of cinnamon
1 tsp. of skim milk
1/2 tsp. of salt
2 cups of flour
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine oil, pumpkin, sugar, egg, and vanilla.
In a separate bowl combine baking soda, and milk, then add to pumpkin mixture.
In another bowl combine cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and flour, then add to pumpkin mixture.
Stir in chocolate chips and scoop out onto nonstick cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-13 minutes.

  32. Oh my goodness, Libby's has organic pumpkin! My store doesn't have it yet. I am so excited. I love pumpkin, but like you it should be a hint of pumpkin not the whole thing. These sound so good!
