Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tastes like fall...And brings back memories. This recipe was submitted by one of my cute 4th grade students for a Mother's Day Cookbook that we published in 2005. I've made these cookies every fall since then and absolutely love them!
BoldPumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
(Submitted by Alexis Teasdale)

1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
2 eggs
1/2 large can Libby's Canned Pumpkin (NOT Pumpkin Pie...about 1 1/2 cups)*
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
12 oz chocolate chips

Cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs and vanilla. Mix in pumpkin. Add dry ingredients. Mix well. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes.

*I personally think Libby's is the BEST brand of pumpkin out there and I do think it makes a different in your baking. Also, you can buy just PUMPKIN or PUMPKIN PIE, make sure it is the PUMPKIN. They are different!
