Pumpkin Chocolate-Chip Cookies



Fall is here and it's time to enjoy pumpkin! It's a wonder to me that some people actually cook from an actual pumpkin. Maybe this will be the year that I tackle that feat but for now, I'm very happy using the canned pumpkin variety. So convenient, so tasty. Growing up, my mother always made Pumpkin Bread, which I devoured every time she baked it. It was until my adult years that I learned about pumpkin-chocolate chip cookies. This was my first time making these and let me just tell you...

these cookies got some rave reviews.

Since we're trying to eat healthier in my household, I brought these in to work and was actually scolded for bringing them in by co-workers who are also trying to eat healthy. Sowry!
