Maura's Famous Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This one is from my Alpha Chi Omega pledge sister Maura and these cookies are fabulous!! At my house these are a favorite year round - not just in the fall. 

1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup shortening (or butter)

1 cup pumpkin

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla
6 oz bag chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)

Cream together the sugar, egg and shortening. Add the pumpkin. Blend well.

Stir together flour, baking soda, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Add to pumpkin mixture.

Add vanilla, chips and nuts (if using).

Drop in rounded teaspoonsful on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Do not overbake. Cool and store in an airtight container.

(I usually double the recipe and use a 15-ounce can of pumpkin)

Our Biergarten

Had to share how creative my friend Kendra is! We're headed up to the Poconos this weekend with a third friend, Marjana, to attend the wedding of one of our lifelong friends. The bride and groom requested cash gifts but we wanted to find a fun way to present our present! The happy couple both love good beer and the bride is a master gardener so Kendra combined both to make us this cute Biergarten! We'll put our cards in the slots with the beers. So fun!
