When I made these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, I had an open can of pumpkin puree leftover from a previous pumpkin recipe I had made.  I decided to put the extra puree to good use and added it to these cookies. Best.Decision.Ever!

I was incredibly pleased with how these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies turned out.  They were so soft and puffy, and had more of a cake-like consistency than do regular cookies.  It was kind of like eating a small pillow of cookie-cake.  Eek, so good!  Um, so good, I ate two before dinner.  And one for breakfast the next morning.  So much for losing those extra five pounds before Christmas.  I’m doomed, ya’ll.
