We began our official Pumpkin Season ’09 last night. Krista baked pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (not vegan) for dessert. It was three star recipe in our household, but the reviewers on the food network love it (five stars!). It is kind of puffy and a little too cake-y for our tastes, but that’s a common side effect of baking with pumpkin puree. Near the end, our oven hit its stride & the final few batches were a little under done & more delicious. However, even mediocre pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are awesome. Pumpkin & chocolate are a terribly underrated combination.
