Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies


I grew up having these cookies just about every fall so to me it's never officially fall until these delicious cookies are made and eaten. So after a long night and being a little under the weather the last couple of days it sounded like the perfect opportunity.

 I've decided to share this yummy recipe not only because I love it so much, but I'm starting to try and take pictures of some of my favorite recipes I make so one day I can make a cookbook with the pictures. After seeing that you can make cookbooks on Blurb it's something I've been wanting to do sometime; as ambitious as that sounds. We'll see how long it takes to do :)

So the recipe...

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups shortening or butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
2 cups pumpkin
4 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 pkg chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts

Blend butter and sugar. Add eggs and pumpkin. In a separate bowl shift together flour, soda, salt and cinnamon, then add to pumpkin mixture. Add chocolate chips and nuts and mix all together. Spoon onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 8-11 minutes.



While the cookies are cooking mix up the frosting and frost cookies when cooled.

Frosting

1/2 cup brown sugar
3 TBSP butter
1/4 cup milk
2-4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Heat sugar, butter and milk. Mix in powdered sugar and vanilla until it's the consistency of frosting.


Enjoy!

Stay tuned for a post about my fun trip to Oregon last week to visit my sister!
