Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

'Tis the season to add pumpkin to basically everything.  I started making these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies last Fall and they were such a hit!  They have more of a muffin-like texture than normal cookies... and they are heavenly.  Here's the recipe:  

1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine pumpkin, sugar, oil, and egg in a bowl.  In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt.  Dissolve baking soda and milk together, then stir into flour mixture.  Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.  Add vanilla and chocolate chips.  Drop by the spoonful on a well greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 minutes until lightly brown.

Pair these babies with a pumpkin spice latte and you are good to go!*
