Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Summary: November 26:  A Cookie A Day Until Christmas!  Can you ever have too many pumpkin recipes? I think not. My cute daughter-in-law, Kendra, shared this recipe with me to share with you!


  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg.
  2. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt.
  3. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in.
  4. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
  5. Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350° for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.

Karma's notes.... Chad proclaimed them, "Good" and added, "I think they're a 'make again'."  It's a soft, cakey cookie, and I don't understand why you have to mix the baking soda with the milk.  I might have to email Alton Brown.
