Pumpkin m&m cookies
I'm having little visitors tomorrow aka my nephews so I wanted to make a treat for them. They're supposed to be chocolate chip pumpkin cookies but I didn't have choc chips so I had to make due with what I had. They came out rather well.
This recipe is from my friend Marin:
14.5 oz can pumpkin
2 eggs, slightly beaten
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
12 oz package choc chips
4 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
Preheat oven to 375.
In large bowl combine pumpkin, eggs, sugar, oil, milk, vanilla, salt, baking soda, cinnamon and choc chips.
In a bowl blend flour and baking powder.
Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and stir well.
Use 1 tablespoon to make small dollops on an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake 10-15 mins.
Cool on rack. Makes 24 cookies.
