Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the kind of cookies that you either love or hate. If you love them, it is easy to eat too many because they taste good and you can pretend that they are sort of good for you (even though they probably aren't). Dallin loves these cookies.
When Josh & Brad were on their missions, I never sent them cookies. It was too expensive and by the time they would have received them they would have been hard and stale. But with Dallin being in California, I can send them to him every now & then. It only takes a couple of days for him to get them. These are his favorite cookies. He loves it when he gets some in the mail. He tells me that he is tempted to horde them but he usually shares them with his companions.
I got this recipe from a Marilyn Hanson, who I was in the Primay Presidency with in Emerson Ward. These cookies are cake like cookies, they are meant to be soft and fluffy so don't overbake them.

  1. to this day I still dream about your chocolate chip cookies.. every once in awhile a craving just hits me that I cant overcome. Do you remember how much I loved those?????????
    I'm pretty sure there is nothing better in the whole world..
    And during those rough high school times, there was nothing more that could make me feel better than I plate of your chocolate chip cookies.
    Especially the really giant one you and Charis made for me once!
    Thanks for that...

  2. Chrisy to the rescue again!!!!!!! Katie had a melt down in the grocery store because I wouldn't pay $6.00 for a dozen choco chip pumpkin cookies. When i got home I checked your blog and lo and behold here they are! I just made these and they're warm and delicious in our tummies. Much better than the store bought cookies! Thank you!
