Pumpkin Chip Cookies

These golden cakelike cookies are my favorite, especially around the holidays. They disappear quickly from my dessert trays. The subtle pumpkin and cinnamon flavors pair nicely with chocolate chips. —Tami Burroughs, Salem, Oregon

    My grandson is a very picky eater, but he loves pumpkin and chocolate. I made these for him. They were amazing. They didn't last long between all of us. Just delicious.

    I used butterscotch chis and they were great. I also used fresh pumpkin instead of canned and 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon.

    These are delicious and moist. They also freeze very well. I put them in sandwich bags and then in a freezer bag. Perfect!

    A favorite recipe to keep and share with friends and neighbors. The flavors are so delicious. And the chocolate gives it that extra delicious mix. I often use mini chocolate chips. I also had to bake longer than suggested.

    Pumpkin was very subtle. The cookies stayed moist and chewy. I substituted 1/2 white chips and 1/2 butterscotch chips for the chocolate. Everyone in the family loved them!
