Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Its that time of year again when baking becomes a common part of my week. I love the way these delicious, moist cookies make the house smell so heavenly. Something about that spice smell warms my heart and makes me feel like fall has finally arrived. Hope your tummy loves them as much as my family does. xoxo

INGREDIENTS:
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (I sub 1/4 cup with whole grain flour)
1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 can (15oz) 100% pure pumpkin puree
2 large eggs
2 cups (12oz pkg) semi-sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS:
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F, grease pans (or line with parchment paper)

Combine flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl.

Beat softened butter and sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy.

Beat in pumpkin, eggs and vanilla extract.

Gradually beat in flour mixture

Stir in chocolate chips gently.

Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 12 to 20 minutes(depending on your oven) or until edges are lightly browned. Let them cool on the baking sheet for at least 5 mins before placing them on a rack to cool completely. Then enjoy with a nice tall glass of milk!
