Pumpkin Cookies

Preheat oven to 350.

Add each ingredient in each column as given. Then add column 2 to column 1.

Column 1:
1 cup Crisco shortening
3 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups pumpkin (15 oz can)
2 tsp. vanilla

Column 2:
5 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. cinnamon

Add 2 cups chocolate chips (preferably milk chocolate ones).

(If you prefer, you can substitute 2 cups of nuts or 2 cups of golden raisins.)

Line cookie sheets with parchment paper (not mandatory, but they come out great this way) or spray with nonstick spray. Drop a heaping tablespoon of dough per cookie onto the sheet… you can get around 15 cookies on a large cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 10 – 12 minutes (in my oven, 8 minutes was plenty… adjust for your own oven).

Makes around 6-7 dozen cookies.​
