Yummy pumpkin cookies

Posted on: November 4, 2008

Instead of doing things that really needed to be done yesterday, I made cookies.  I got the recipe off of the Cooking Light Bulletin Board.  The poster just said it was her friend’s recipe, so I can’t credit it any further than that.   See below the recipe for my notes.  The cookies were big, soft, and delicious.

Pumpkin-Chocolate Chip Cookies

3 cups canned pumpkin (1 large can)
1 1/2 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs, beaten
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon milk
6 cups flour
3 cups sugar
2 Tablespoons baking powder
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 ½ teaspoons nutmeg
1 ½ teaspoons salt
2 bags chocolate chips

Combine pumpkin, oil, eggs, and vanilla in a large (4 quart) bowl. In a small bowl, combine milk and baking soda; mix well and add to pumpkin mixture. Combine all dry ingredients well in another bowl; add to pumpkin mixture and mix well (this works best if dry ingredients are added to pumpkin mixture little by little). Stir in chocolate chips. Use ice cream scoop to drop batter onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees 12-15 minutes. Makes a large batch. Cookies freeze well.

Lori’s notes:  I made a 2/3 recipe.  Subbed 1/2 the flour with whole wheat flour.  Instead of chocolate chips, I added raisins.
