Pumpkinpalooza: Chocolate Chip Cookies

This week’s recipe is a special request from my two year old niece! She was not feeling herself from a bad virus that had swept thru her daycare, so as a special treat she wanted cookies. Being the great aunt that I am, I went into the kitchen and whipped up a very simple recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies to put a smile on her face!!!

These simple, moist and delicious cookies are a perfect fall treat for bake sale, holiday party or any fall day event like pumpkin carving! I love adding pumpkin to any ordinary recipe; you would be surprised how one ingredient can transform your food into something extraordinary!  So take the kids, get into the kitchen and bake up some smiles this fall season!

Cook with love,
