Recipe Tuesday- Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mmmmm, today is Recipe Tuesday and I decided to share our favorite cookie recipe- Pumpkin chocolate chip!!! The recipe is on the post below. But I wanted to also add that you don't always have to use canned, store bought pumpkin. In the fall when pumpkins are in season, I will cook up an entire pumpkin and use fresh pumpkin for the cookies. If you have never cooked your own pumpkin, its easy to do. Thoroughly wash the pumpkin really good and then prick it with a fork. Then place the pumpkin on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven at 350ยบ for 30-45 minutes. When it is soft and collapsed a little, it is done. Take it out and let it cool for about 10-15 minutes. Then peel off the out side skin and clean out the inside seeds. Chop the pumpkin flesh into cubes and puree it in a blender. Then put it in a container and refrigerate up to a week. I also will freeze some of it for future use in soups, bread, cookies and pumpkin rolls. YUM!!!
