With October in full swing, and life getting ABSOLUTELY crazy as I prepare for birthdays, a HUGE family reunion, and the start of the holiday crafting season....I've decided to take some time out and bake.
Yea, it's something I find I don't do too much now that I'm a working mama. Dear Hubby and Mini Me were complaining about the lack of Cookie Fridays, so I decided to pamper all of us and make some Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
These cookies make me Mom of the Year.
Partly because they are that good,
partly because like Drama Queen said "I remember these from long ago", I just don't make them that often.
I don't know why.
They are super easy...
Mix 1 cup of Pumpkin
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Oil
In a seperate bowl, mix 2 cups of Flour
2 teaspoons of Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of Salt
Combine the wet and dry ingredients.
Mix until well blended.
Add 1 teaspoon Milk
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
and 1 teaspoon Vanilla
Add 1 (or 2 or 3) cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
Drop mounds of cookie dough onto a baking sheet.
These cookies don't spread much, so it's okay if they get a little close and personal.
Cook at 375 degrees for 10 to 14 minutes.
Now you too can be Mom of the Year!
