Recipe Thursday - Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Each Thursday, I am going to be sharing a recipe with you!
I will pick a recipe from my collection and I will be sharing where I got the recipe and everything. But I am going to include my own photo of the finished food, the original recipe, and try and share the things I changed when I made it!

I would love your help too! If you have a great recipe, especially week-night dinner recipes (but I would love all kinds of recipes) - please share it with me, by emailing me at I will try it out and feature it on my blog! If you have cooking tips or anything else in regards to cooking and food - please email me!

This week's Recipe:
A few weeks ago in Relief Society at church, the teacher gave out a recipe and a cookie as part of her wonderful lesson. This cookie was so yummy and just hit the spot. I've always wanted to learn to make this kind of cookie, but hadn't made the effort to find a recipe. I remember my Grandma Sorensen and my Aunt Suzanne making them, when I was young. So, 2 weeks ago, I made them for the very first time and I have to say they turned out fabulous! I will definitely be making these a lot - I just wish my husband liked them more! Oh well, more for me and the kids!

1/2 tsp salt

1 Tbs baking soda

1 Tbs nutmeg

1 Tbs cinnamon

1 Tbs vanilla

24 oz bag chocolate chips

Mix all together and drop on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-14 minutes.

I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies too...Scott doesn't like them though! Too bad we don't live closer together so we could share with each other :)

Thanks DeDe... this is interesting. I never would have thought to put pumpkin & chocolate chips together.
