From Barbie deLackner (Elizabeth Bolton)…irresistable, to both humans and cats. The feline in question survived, even though chocolate is bad for cats. Eating cookies meant for humans is also bad for cats, since the humans get very, very upset and sometimes toss said feline across the room.
You can also bake this in a 9 x 12 pan. The result is like a sheet cake, or very, very moist cookie bars.
Mix wet ingredients together:
1 C pumpkin
1 C sugar
1/2 C oil
1 t vanilla
Mix dry ingredients together:
2 C flour
2 t baking powder
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t salt
Combine dry and wet ingredients and add:
1 t baking soda dissolved in 1 T milk
1 C chocolate chips
1/2 C nuts (I used walnuts)
Drop onto greased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees. Resulting cookie will be extremely cakelike and moist.
