Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

There's so many yummy things you can rustle up with one Pumpkin. It's like the turkey at christmas. SO many possibilities. I've decided to do Pumpkin 3 Ways - Pumpkin Choc Chip Cinnamon Cookies, Thai Curried Pumpkin Soup and a Pumpkin, Honey & Cinnamon Face Mask! The dessert should always come first, it would be rude not to, so let's start with the cookies (mainly because William's not here yet so I can have the cookie dough mixture bowl to myself :) )

Mmm •dribble•

This recipe is ridiculously simple and it makes about 15 cookies.

What you'll need//

100g Margarine
100g Brown sugar
Un egg
Tsp Vanilla Extract
Tsp Cinnamon
Half mug of pumpkin innerds!
Pinch salt
150g Self Raising Flour
1 bag choc chips mmm

+ A glass of milk to drink when devouring cookies

Preheat oven to 180 degrees

Method
Preparing the pumpkin purée - Grab a handful of pumpkin innards and chop up roughly (no seeds in the equation please!) Boil for 20 minutes or until tender.
Whilst waiting for pumpkin to boil, cream together the margarine & brown sugar.
Add the egg, vanilla extract, cinnamon & salt and mix well.
Time to add the pumpkin purée. Take the pumpkin off the heat and sieve the excess water. Blend with a mixer or hand blender. Add half a mugful to the mixture and stir.

Sieve and stir the flour in gradually to the mixture (don't do what I did and use a wet sieve) then tip on the entire pack of choc chips mmm

Grease the baking tray and make little cookie dollops as small/big as you fancy. I'm not the neatest of bakers...
