Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

I was definitely in the baking mood this weekend. Here’s my 2nd cookie. One of Todd’s best friend came over for dinner and the Seattle vs. New Orleans football game so I made these for dessert. I couldn’t make them fast enough! They kept asking me for more! :)

(Recipe from | photos from me!)

Makes ~24 cookies (1 cookie=1 serving)
Calories/serving = 146
WW pts/serving = 3


1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup shortening
7.5 oz pumpkin puree
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 ounces semisweet chocolate chips


> Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
> Cream the sugar, shortening, pumpkin and vanilla together. Mix until light and well combined.
> Mix the flour, baking soda and ground cinnamon. Stir the flour mixture into the creamed mixture. Mix until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
> Drop by teaspoons onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes or until set. Let cookies cool on a rack.

** TIP: Can substitute pumpkin pie filling instead of the puree.

He said “almost as good as the PB cookies… almost.”

I liked them but not a huge pumpkin fan

He even asked to take some home! LOL

One more picture from fellow foodie bride, Nikki. She wasn’t my SB but I was so proud of my cookies I had to send a couple to my “mentor”. :)
