And because I want to share my fabulous fall mood, I'm going to give you the recipe! Actually, I found this on allrecipes.com a few years ago. You can see the original recipe right here. I've changed some things here to make it even more awesome...
- 1 cup Libby's Pumpkin Pie Mix
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon milk
- 1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chip
Then there are a couple things to note with this recipe. Like I mentioned, the vanilla and semisweets tend to fight a bit. If you find it is just too much, go with milk chocolate chips instead. I love this version even better- I'm not a huge chocolate enthusiast so milk is more tame for me. You'll be tempted to eat these right out of the oven but be warned- there is a LOT of chocolate in there so that will be mostly what you taste. I think it tastes a lot better to let them sit out and get to room temperature- the pumpkin and cinnamon is more evident that way. The recipe mentions refrigerating them and that way is good too! Mmmm. Can you tell that I'm really passionate about these cookies? =)

Anyway, thanks for letting me share this yummy goodness- now go! Run to the grocery store to pick up some pumpkin!
