Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

A little fall inspired baking was the order of the day.  I know, I know, it's still Summer, but the temperature got down to the 40s overnight, so it's really starting to feel like fall. 

I have had this recipe for quite a few years now, but this is the first time I tried it.  These cookies are so good, I'm kicking myself now, wondering what took me so long to make them!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

½ cup butter, softened
½ cup shortening
¾ cup brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 to 2½ cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 bag chocolate chips (2 cups)

Cream butter, sugars, shortening.  Add eggs, pumpkin, vanilla.  Add dry ingredients.  Add chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 350° for 15 minutes. 

These are easy to make & soooo yummy. I hope you enjoy them!
