.pumpkin choc chip cookies.
i considered simply writing- "just make these." however, i figured that may come across as bossy or curt. so instead, i'll tell you a little about why you should just make these.
they're good. ok, wait- that's too easy. you start with some simple moves like getting your cream on with some butter and sugars. then, shake shake shake shake shake shake, shake your egg and vanilla in.
mix all those dry ingredients in a separate bowl. this cookie even has a little rolled oats in it for texture. once all your dry goodies are mixed, start adding them to the wet mixture.
alternate with pumpkin and then finish with your chips.
ok, listen, put whatever you want in these cookies. if you don't like white chocolate, fine- put more semi sweet. if you want to do milk chocolate instead, knock yourself out. feeling a little nutty? add some in!
the recipe makes enough cookies to make a whole lotta people happy.
and you want to know another reason why you need to try them out? they'll make you happy. they're tasty, soft and perfect for the fall season.
