Lisa Full's Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are a yummy combo of pumpkin, spices, and chocolate chips. They are a very light cookie, with a cake-like texture.

2 sticks softened butter
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup (6oz)  semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1/2 cup chopped pecans

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Beat butter until fluffy. Gradually add sugar to the butter; beat well.
3. Add egg and pumpkin to the butter/sugar mixture and mix well.
4. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add dry mixture to pumpkin mixture. Stir in chocolate and pecans.
5. Drop dough by teaspoon on lightly greased cookie sheet.
6. Bake for approximately 8-13 minutes (watch the first batch very close to figure out the time for your oven/cookie size).  Remove to cooling rack.

Makes approximately 3 to 4 dozen.
