Grandma's Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies- Tastes so Good You'll Need More
A Touch of Pumpkin
This recipe is a classic cookie with a touch of modern, Taste like something straight out of Martha Stewart's Kitchen. When my husband first made these I thought to myself Well this cant be good, I just couldnt fathom the idea of chocolate chip and pumpkin together. It wasnt until everyone that tried these cookies did I realize that it was actually something good about them. I dont eat pumpkin just because I dont think I would like pumpkin, Just from the smell of it and the idea of the texture in my mouth isnt appealing to me either, But I have to say that absolutely every single person who tries these comes back for more and more. We usually end up making a double batch cause we buy the big can of pupkin and then end up not having enough for ourselves cause just like the Lays Commercial, You cant just have one, Or like the pringles You cant just pop one. So this is the recipe and I hope you like and enjoy them, May you have many many more batches of cookies.
To make this recipe you will need to have the following items.
4 cups All Purpose Flour
2 Cups Of Granulated Sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Salt
1 Can (16 ounce) Solid Packed Pumpkin
1 Cup Vegtable Oil
2 Tablespoons of Milk
2 teaspoons of Vanilla
2 Cups (12 Ounce) Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
1 cup chopped walnuts. (optional)
A little hint: I personally use the can of Libbys Ready to Bake Pumpkin Pie mix so you dont need to add the cinnamon unless you like it to have all the cinnamon taste to it. I think it personally makes it taste better also.
Step One: Mixing
In a mixing bowl combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add the pumpkin, Oil, eggs, milk,and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips and nuts.
I highly recommend that instead of doing all the dry ingredients I would do the wet ingredients in one bowl and in another I would put all your dry ingredients and mix with a spoon and drop by cups a little at a time into the wet mix and mix well. I have burned up one to many mixers because it gets so thick it couldnt handle the cookie mix. You will want to do this until it is mixed well enough to drop on to the cookie sheets.
