I own very few cookbooks. I mean, for someone obsessed with cooking, anyway. Less than 10, I think. Instead, I keep a giant binder full of recipes. This is one of them. I have no idea where the original came from. But I am oh-so-glad I have it.
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies
4 c. flour
2 c. sugar
3 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 can (16 oz) pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 c. melted butter
1/2 c. vegetable oil
2 tbsp. milk
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. chocolate chips (I used combination of chocolate chips and a giant semi-sweet chocolate baking bar)
1/2 c. chopped nuts (I used pecan chips)
Combine dry ingredients in mixing bowl. Combine pumpkin, butter, oil, eggs, milk, and vanilla in another bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix well. Stir in chocolate and nuts.
Drop dough by tablespoonful onto cookie sheet. Space about 2 inches apart.
Bake at 375 degrees for 13-14 minutes. Let cool a couple minutes on pan, then move to rack to finish cooling.
