Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn't love pumpkin this time of year? I've already baked up pancakes, muffins, and cookies to showcase one of my favorite seasonal flavors. These cookies are a recipe we make a least once or twice each fall, and then Joe ends up talking about them for the other 9 months of the year when I don't use much pumpkin! I brought some to our condo board meeting last night, and when I suggested people take another cookie at the end of the meeting, just about everyone did! That's a sign these are a popular treat, right?

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
from an unknown online source (aka scrawled down years ago and stuck in my recipe book)

1 cup pumpkin
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg

In a separate bowl, combine:
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt

In a small bowl, dissolve:
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp milk

Mix all parts, then add:
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups chocolate chips

Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until light brown and firm.

Now that it's almost October, and getting chilly outside, I figured it was
time to pull out some cute fall decorations for around the house.
