Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

This is my husbands very favorite Christmas time cookie.

We've been married almost 13 years and a lot of things have changed.  
One thing that has not... is his love of THIS cookie.

I thought it was time I shared the recipe. It is adapted from a cookbook I got 21 years ago the Christmas just after my high school graduation.  I can't believe I even have a cookbook from that long ago.  I guess that tells you what kind of a girl I am... and always have been.  I love to cook!  Anyway.. here you go:
