And that is what I am currently guilty of! Cookie and a cup of coffee!
Whenever Fall rolls around I am so ready to fill my house with the sweet and spicy scents of cinnamon, pumpkin and brown sugar! That is why I always turn to these two recipes the first time the Texas weather dips under 80 degrees for a high! Yes folks…that’s Fall for us!
So this weekend was the perfect opportunity to pull out my cookbook and make my 2 favorite Fall cookie recipes and I thought I would share them with you! ENJOY!

Combine Pumpkin, egg, oil and sugar into a large mixing bowl or stand mixer and mix well.
Gradually add flour stirring constantly. Add baking powder, salt and cinnamon and mix well.
Add baking soda and milk while stirring. Last add vanilla and chocolate chips. Mix again until chocolate chips are evenly spaced.
Drop onto a greased cookie sheet with an ice cream scoop.
