  • 1 cup shortening
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 & 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 & 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 3/4 tsp. soda
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. lemon flavoring
  • 1 tsp. vanilla flavoring
  • **I also add an 1/2 to 1 tsp of nutmeg
  • Additionally to have fluffier cookies add another cup or cup and half of flour to the dough

Cream together the shortening, eggs and sugar. Then sift everything except the lemon and vanilla flavoring. After you’ve sifted all the ingredients you can add the lemon and vanilla flavoring in. Fold in 1 & 1/2 cups of pumpkin. Add one large package of milk chocolate chips and one half cups of walnuts if desired. Drop by teaspoon and bake at 375* for 10 to 12 minutes.
