Canned Pumpkin is never terribly expensive here in the northeast, but as a bonus it tends to go on sale (and have coupons pop up) around Halloween and Thanksgiving. Pick up a can and give this oh so yummy recipe a try.
2 1/2 C Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 C Softened Butter
1 1/2 C Sugar
1 C Canned Pumpkin
1 tsp Vanilla
1 C Chocolate Chips
Cream butter and sugar together.
Add pumpkin, vanilla and egg. Beat until the mixture is light and creamy.
Mix all dry ingredients together well in a bowl.
Add dry ingredients to wet and mix well.
Fold or gently mix in chocolate chips.
Drop by the rounded teaspoonful onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes (until lightly browned).
