My sisters have been busy all day today making up salads, side dishes, pumpkin pies, and pumpkin cupcakes (hmmm - I wonder where they got that recipe from?). Even my brother is making Sour Cream Apple Pies (my Grandmother's recipe) to bring over. They are the best!
While I was thinking about what I could bring, I came across this great recipe for Pumpkin Chip Cookies. I love pumpkin anything, so when I saw this recipe I thought it would be the perfect addition to our Thanksgiving feast!
The recipe is very simple and quite easy to make. All you need is:
- 1 cup of butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugar. Mix in wet ingredients. Mix in dry ingredients. Add chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonful onto baking sheet. Bake 10 - 12 minutes at 375 degrees.
They turned out great and even my dh (who won't go near pumpkin pie) said they were good! If you get a chance to try them out, you should. You won't be disappointed!
