Apple*Tart- would you give me your recipe for

your pumpkin chocolate chip cookies? I've never had any or made them but one of my sons loves pumpkin pie and chocolate chips cookies so I though I'd make them for him.

He turned 18 last month and I'm having a hard time with that and am "babying him" before he grows up too much and leaves home.

Thank you!

Man o man, I have been craving these cookies lately! I actually don't have a recipe - yet! I googled and looked on recipe sites and mostly found recipes that yield "cake-like" cookies, which is not what I'm going for. I want something like a regular chocolate chip cookie, but maybe even a little more moist and dense!

So, I'm going to experiment. I've got a few ideas and I'm planning on trying them soon. I may even be able to make my first batch today - I've just been pressed for time lately. When I get a good recipe, though, I'll be happy to come back and post it for you!

I know that some folks substitute applesauce for oil in recipes, so maybe it would work for pumpkin, too. Although cookies usually use butter/shortening. Maybe cut down on that amount and use canned pumpkin as a partial replacement.
Let us know how it goes...

I think he has figured out this is hard for me and he's going to love having all his favorite foods.

The ones that I found also were cake-like cookies too and I'd prefer a cookie not cake-like.

I'm actually going for something chewy and dense rather than crisp. If you've ever had the pumpkin chocolate chips from The Fresh Market, something like that is my holy grail.
