Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love this recipe. It's so simple, and you don't need ground nutmeg, cloves, etc. I left out the nuts because I didn't have any on hand, but they'd probably taste good with them included. I want to try this with Pumpkin Pie Spice instead of or in addition to cinnamon. Everyone but my mom said these were good. The pumpkin flavor is there but not over-powering, it doesn't taste spice-y because it only contains cinnamon, and the texture is cake-like...kinda like the texture of persimmon cookies. You could even consider them muffin tops!

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
