Foody Friday: Pumpkin Cookies
Make these super easy cookies to bring to a Halloween party this weekend! They're slightly healthier than most cookies..if you ignore the honkin' whole cup of white sugar in there.
1&1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil or sour cream for a lower-fat version
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour - I always use a blend of whole wheat and white; about 1.5 cups wheat with 0.5 cups white
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Whisk egg, pumpkin, sugar, vanilla and oil together. Add dry ingredients; mix. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes at 350 F. Because of the moist, cake-like texture, these pretty much never go bad. I made them over a week ago and they still taste fine to me!
