Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Roxygirl in Colorado

The secret to these cookies is baking them at a low temperature.They are dense like a scone, with a cake-like inside. Recipe from "The Market" in Denver. My teenaged son LOVES these! Tip: I flatten the cookies slightly with a greased bottom of a measuring cup, about halfway through baking, which produces a flatter cookie.

I have made these cookies TWICE already and they are so so yummy! The only adjustments I did was 1 cup of chocolate chips (semi-sweet) and I added a dash more nutmeg than called for because I like a little more of that spice flavor, adds to the holiday season! AND I baked at 350 for 12 minutes-they come out perfect promise!, GREAT cookies!
