Low Fat Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 12 mins

A recipe I developed when wanted a lower fat, lower sugar cookie for tea time. If you've never made low fat cookies before, don't expect the texture to be like a higher fat cookie. Low fat cookies can be just as tasty, but have a more muffin like texture. Make sure you use plain pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling.
