Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 30 cookies
- 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice*
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 3/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree , not pumpkin pie filling
- 1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375F degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Whisk together the flour, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking soda & salt.
In a large bowl beat the butter and sugars until fluffy. Then mix in the eggs and vanilla extract.
Mix in the pumpkin puree, followed by the flour mixture.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Spoon the dough into balls about 1 - 1.5 tablespoons in size (I use a cookie scoop). Place 2 inches apart on the lined cookie sheets and flatten slightly.
Bake for 7-9 minutes, or until the tops look just set. Remove from the oven and optionally place a few chocolate chips on top of each.
