Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies for the Hunters

This week the boys in the family are gone hunting… which means the gals in the family make them treats to take along.  And if you’re my Grandma, you make a whole lot more than just treats.  These hunters eat like Kings.  I’m pretty sure they just lay around their campsite all day eating and napping.  :)

Anyways, this year I sent Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies- perfect for this time of year.  They end up making more of a cake like cookie rather than a regular chocolate chip.  They’re yummy!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups pumpkin puree

1 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

2 cups white sugar

4 cups flour

4 teaspoons baking powder

4 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons baking soda

2 tablespoons milk

2 tablespoons vanilla

2 cups milk chocolate chips

2 cups mini semisweet chocolate chips

In your mixer, combine the sugar, pumpkin puree, eggs, oil and vanilla.  In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.  Mix the baking soda and milk and combine with the dry ingredients.  Once the wet ingredients are mixed add the dry ingredients a little at a time and mix well.  The dough will be pretty sticky.  Add the chocolate chips.  Since the dough is so sticky, it works best to use a cookie dough scooper to place the cookies on a greased baking sheet.

Bake for about 10 minutes at 350 degrees.  Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
