Yesterday morning we woke up to the first SNOW of the season!
I've been getting a head start on all of my Christmas shopping and now it really is beginning to look a lot like Christmas. This Christmas season, more than anything, I'm looking forward to spending time with my children.
Not only do I have an empty nest, but all of my children live far away and I miss them so much.
At any rate, I did what I love to do on snow days. I stayed home and baked cookies!
They're Pumpkin Chocolate Chip and perfect for this time of year!!
Here's the recipe. Maybe it will be one you add to your Thanksgiving traditions! They are yummy!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
Cream together sugar and butter, then mix in pumpkin, egg, and vanilla.
IN a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients:
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.
Add 1 cup chocolate chips and mix well.
Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.
That's it! So easy and sooooo good.
I always double the recipe, cuz we always give a few plates of cookies away.
Have a great Monday, everyone!
