Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s during this time of year that we begin to see pumpkin spiced everything. Pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin spiced cream cheese, pumpkin spiced air freshener, etc. etc. etc…. I’m not going to lie.  I’m not a huge pumpkin spice fan.  In fact, pumpkin pie might be my least favorite pie…ever.  HOWEVER, I love pumpkin when it’s just pumpkin…no pumpkin spice blend.  For me, I love pumpkin bread, pumpkin muffins, and even pumpkin risotto, so it stands to reason that I needed to make pumpkin cookies, and what a better combination than pumpkin and dark chocolate.
