This is a Pumpkin Cookie recipe, that just happens to have chocolate chips in it. I guess you could add nuts if you wanted to. I guess you could do raisins too if you wanted, but please don't. Raisins have their place....just not in these cookies.
It's good and moist and "pumpkiny", so you have to like pumpkin in order to like these cookies.
They are a cake like cookie.
There really isn't much more to say about them. Except my book club gobbled them up by the handfuls.
1/2 cup oil
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 can pumpkin (small can--enough for 1 pie)
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. allspice
1 pkg. chocolate chip cookies
