Preheat oven to 350*F. In a large bowl, combine oil, pumpkin, egg, sugar, and vanilla
In a small cup, combine baking soda and milk, and add to pumpkin mixture
In a separate bowl, combine cinnamon, baking powder, salt, and flour
Pour dry ingredients into the wet and stir until well combined, then fold in the chocolate chips. Dough will be fairly loose
This dough smells incredible!
Spoon into cookie sheets, leaving at least 1" of space in between (cookies bake "up" more than "out")
Bake for 12-13 minutes, remove from oven, let cool on pan for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire cooling rack - try not to gobble them all up before they cool! :)
I can't describe how wonderful your house will smell while these are baking, and these easy-to-make cookies are the perfect sweet treat for the fall!
