Brighten Your Little Corner of the World

I saw that quote on King Arthur's Flour Blog this morning. The coffee cake featured (nut free) also looks really good. I thought the quote was appropriate as the rain has stopped here and I see a little bit of sun. I made pumpkin chocolate chip cookies yesterday at my kids request. These are yummy and make a huge batch.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 ½ cup butter or margarine softened
2 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
16oz canned pumpkin
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cup flour
2 cup rolled oats (quick cooking)
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and pumpkin until blended. Add the dry ingredients and blend well. Add chocolate chips. Scoop into balls and place on lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until peaks are brown.

****NOTE**** you can cut this recipe in half and still use just 1 egg.

Go ahead, brighten your little corner of the world.
