I had a craving a few weeks ago for these. It may sound odd but the pumpkin adds just a little bit. Just the right bit. Luckily all items were in my pantry - very rare. I put most of them in the freezer after they were cooked and would take out 1 or 2 (okay, usually 2 or 3) when the need arose. Just hit the spot!
1 cup softened butter: beat until smooth
add 1 cup each of white and brown sugar: beat until light and fluffy
2 eggs: beat in 1 at a time
mix in 1 tsp vanilla + 1 cup pumpkin puree
whisk then add 3 cups flour + 2 tsp baking soda + 1/2 tsp salt + 1 tsp cinnamon + 1/2 tsp ginger + 1/4 tsp nutmeg + 1/4 tsp ground cloves
2 cups chocolate chips: stir in
Bake on lightly greased pan, or use parchment paper. Rotate pans 1/2 way through.
350 degrees, 15-20 minutes
Yummy yummy in your tummy. Thank you Jacque!
