Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is going to be a short post because we're heading out to Sewanee, TN in the morning to spend Thanksgiving week with the in-laws! I can't wait for them to see how much our little Helen Mae has grown up. I have been seeing a lot of posts about pumpkin cookies on the blogs lately- and I had never tried them before- so since I'm such a big pumpkin fan I decided to make the most popular recipe listed on All Recipes for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

These cookies are made with oil instead of butter and the consisentency is much more cake-like than cookie-like. The flavor is very good- the spices and chocolate go well together- but I've never been a huge fan of cakey cookies. So, the veredict: I doubt I'd make these again, but I can't pretend that they weren't all eaten up! So have a happy Thanksgiving everyone- I'm going to have a few posts go up while I'm gone but I won't have any internet access in good ole' rocky top so I'll have to catch up with everyone when I return!
