Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

A few weeks ago, I had family in from out of town. We had the whole family and some friends over for 4 days solid! It was one giant whirlwind of cooking and baking. My niece Abbi has this super yummy recipe for cookies. She learned the recipe from school. It's like her thing she does...she always makes them for us. I hate pumpkin and I LOVE these cookies. She came over and baked these for us and we couldn't even get them out of the oven fast enough and they were gone before they even cooled down. Here is Abbi's recipe:

You will need two bowls.

In second bowl mix:

Wow, those look really good Abby, great job! Do you help your mom in the kitchen? Also, how old are you? I need a baby sitter, do you drive?

Anyway, the last photo of the cookies on the plate with a bite mark reminds me of a cookie Santa would have taken a bite of after he dropped off presents under the tree.
