Pumpkin Cinnamon Chip Cookies

Time for more pumpkin!!!! Come on... I gave you the weekend off. You should've expected more pumpkin come Monday! :)

These cookies taste SO MUCH like pumpkin pie to me. I ate them warm out of the oven (delicious), at room temperature (still delicious), and frozen (oh my goodness... AMAZING!). These fantastic cookies retain their softness when frozen so there is no need to thaw before eating. There is just something amazing about them once they are cold. Mmmmm... makes me want to go grab one out of the freezer now!

Enjoy!

Pumpkin Cinnamon Chip Cookies

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup cinnamon chips

Combine dry ingredients; set aside.

Cream butter, shortening, and sugars together in mixing bowl. Mix in pumpkin, vanilla, and egg.

Add dry ingredients all at once; blend until just combined. Fold in cinnamon chips.

Drop rounded scoops onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes. (Tops will be lightly browned and cookie will still be soft.)
