That's the way the cookie crumbles

I made some delicious cookies this weekend that I highly recommend: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.

I added a little extra cinnamon and spices to mine like nutmeg. However, I do not recommend trying to make them healthier like I did my substituting white flour for whole wheat. For the best flavor, stick with white flour as the recipe calls for. They will be cakey from the pumpkin so keeping them in the fridge helps. Enjoy!
