In the end though, I think we were all happy with the result!
like I've said before, I don't often modify recipes when baking, too much can go wrong. So I followed this recipe pretty much exactly, without the option walnuts.
- 1 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon milk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
- Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
- Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
- Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.
The only real changes I made, were that I made bigger cookies (it was dinner time and I wanted to fit them all on 2 pans so I wouldn't have to spoon out more in the middle of eating), and I cooked them for 17 minutes instead of the 10 listed in the recipe. This could have been a result of my cookies being bigger than suggested.
