Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

1 c. granulated sugar
1 c. pumpkin
1/2 c. oil (corn or canola - not olive)
Beat these three together.

Add one egg

2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1. tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
sift these four together

1 tsp. baking soda, dissolved in 1 tsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 c. chocolate chip cookies

Beat sugar, pumpkin, and oil with electric mixer. Add egg, beat.

Add sifted ingredients to pumpkin mixture.

Stir with baking soda/milk mixture. Add vanilla extract and chocolate chips. Stir (not mix).

Drop by tsp. onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes.
Yields 3 1/2 dozen.
(I like these cookies to be really moist. To accomplish this, after cooling, store cookies in plastic containers overnight. This makes them soft; yummy. If you like a harder cookie, you can store them in a cookie jar or box after cooling.)
