I made these cookies a couple weeks ago, and they were so good I made a double batch today! I put half in the freezer and the rest I’m giving to friends and co-workers. They are so so so good! At least, I really think so. 🙂 I have to get them out of my house as soon as possible otherwise I’ll eat them all.
I got the recipe from here.
½ cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
¼ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 ½ cups chocolate chips
Now, this recipe also calls for a cream cheese frosting to go on top of the cookies. I didn’t add that, simply because I didn’t have any cream cheese. They are pretty good without the frosting. I’m sure if you added that they would be even better!
I followed the recipe exactly, but I’m sure you could substitue some things to make them a little healthier. Or, just forget about being healthy for a minute and make these cookies. After all, isn’t it the holiday season?!
End of September marks the Holiday season, right? Costco already has Christmas stuff out, so must be.
While making cookies, I watched The Biggest Loser.
(Ya, I need to clean my computer screen!)
I usually watch this show while cleaning or cooking. I feel a little more productive that way. What do you think of this season so far?? I haven’t finished the first episode yet, but seems good so far. Of course they had to put Anna in there ’cause she’s good lookin’.
Back to cookies —-
You must make them!
Come back here after you’re done and tell me if you liked them.
Don’t blame it on my when you gain 5 pounds, either.
