Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I printed out this recipe from my cousin's blog last year. Sometimes it seems like I'll never get around to all the printed, bookmarked, and torn out recipes I want to try!

Contrary to the plan, we didn't make the homemade pumpkin ice cream on Thanksgiving. There were just too many other sweets to warrant making it. However, I'd already thawed some fresh pumpkin puree from the freezer so I needed to find a way to use it up!

I used Anne's recipe exactly, with the only exception of fresh puree in place of canned and some chocolate chunk pieces because I didn't have enough chips on hand.

I think the fresh puree might have made these cookies a lot more moist than canned puree would have. They were very "cakey" and I think would have been better in muffin form. Some fell apart, but they still tasted great! A subtle pumpkin and spice background to the traditional chocolate chip cookie!
