1/2 teaspoon salt
12 oz chocolate chips; 6-12 oz (depending on how chocolaty you want it)

*Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees

Cream together butter & sugar; add in egg, pumpkin and vanilla; beat well. Stir dry ingredients together and add to pumpkin mixture; add chocolate chips.

Place on greased cookie sheet, bake for 13-14 minutes (to test for doneness, lightly press finger into cookie; it should come pack up slightly)


Everytime I make this for get togethers, I get rave reviews. It's such a big hit!

Q I'm in England. We don't use cups for weight what is the correct measure in ounces etc. Thank you. Q I'm growing my own pumpkins but have never cooked with them before is there a process to it. You seem to use tins

OMG, I just made these cookies and they are EXCELLENT!!! I used pumpkin pie spice instead of the nutmeg and they taste great. I will be making them again for sure.

I made these a few weeks ago I think I expected more of a pumpkin flavor but there wasn't much so that was a little disappointing but they were still good I may make again!
