sweet treats & a sweet deal

We'll probably be using that phrase a lot since LeShan and I live for our daily dose of sweetness, and I'm not talking about our always-on-their-best-behavior children (even that made me laugh out loud). We've got two treats for you today, a delicious recipe to get you in the Fall mood and a "fresh" deal created specially for our readers.

With Fall officially here I immediately started craving my mom's recipe for chocolate chip pumpkin cookies, and because I follow the rule that food-related cravings should always be satisfied, I'm checking my pantry to make sure I have all the necessary ingredients. In the meantime, here's the recipe so we can celebrate the onset of cold weather together. They say everything tastes better when shared, so bring on the sharing!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp milk
2 tsp baking powder
1 c sugar
2 c flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 c pumpkin
1 egg
1/2 c oil
1 c chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375. Dissolve baking soda in milk. Mix dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Mis wet ingredients together in a large bowl. Add dry ingredients to wet and mix well. Add chocolate chips. Bake for 10 minutes or until set. Eat before completely cool. (Okay, I added that last part but these really do taste awesome if they're still a bit warm.)
