Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are a family favorite this time of year. The kids expect them, and I love to make them. This is really the only pumpkin recipe that I like chocolate in, and for my taste I have to use the mini chocolate chips.

Also, I happen to like then cake like, it just seems like tradition to me. If you like more of a cookie texture, like a regular chocolate chip cookie, try replacing the pumpkin with eggs. I have only tried this once, but I left out the eggs and just used pumpkin and they had more of a typical cookie texture. *Just a tip!

The other reason I love these is I get to add mounds of cream cheese frosting and let the kids do it. If I am feeling like a really good Mom, I let them go at it with a knife and bowl of frosting. If we are giving any away, I have to do a few myself, so they are more…. presentable!

I usually just add all the frosting to a ziplock bag, snip off the corner, and squeeze it on that way. Easy!

These freeze very well, and store in the fridge for 5 days. Perfect to make ahead for company!
