pumpkin chocolate chip cookies {SRC}

Chewy chocolate chip cookies with a hint of pumpkin. 

I think October has flown by faster than any month I have ever experience. It is almost like it didn't happen. I barely posted any apple recipes and now our local orchard is saying this is the last week for Pick Your Own.  And pumpkin. Well that hasn't even started...that is until today.

This month for the Secret Recipe Club I had the pleasure of shopping Table for Seven's blog for a recipe.  There were so many savory meals that looks amazing but I was feeling a bit sweet. I picked the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies because chocolate and cookies are a given.  Plus, I was needed to get on the pumpkin bandwagon.  I love pumpkin and look forward to this time of year pretty much every other time of year. 

This recipe was so easy to put together and didn't make a boat load of cookies that I would feel obligated to eat all at once.  The pumpkin and cinnamon flavor definitely come out but they aren't overwhelming. And I really like that these were chewy cookies and not cake-like.  Mr. J ate two immediately and wanted more before I told him no more till pictures were done. 

If you don't know Table for Seven, stop on over and say Hi to Erin. There is lots to see from recipes to cute family photos!
