Now, onto the recipe for the most. delicious. pumpkin. chocolate.chip.cookies.ever.
And when I say ever, I mean ever!!

So, last year, I was walking down the aisles of my local grocery store, and I spotted
some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies on sale.
Now, you just have to understand
that pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are one of my all time favorites.
I was super stoked to go home and take a ginormous bite into one of those delicious cookies!
I drove home, walked in the front door, plopped myself onto the couch
and opened the little plastic container that held those little cookies.
I took one bite, and immediately regretted buying those darn cookies.
Because they were crumbly, dry, and didn't have any flavor to them.
Those cookies deceived me!

I threw the whole container away and spent the night sulking...
Oh, it was a sad night.

However, I was determined not to let those stale, pathetic cookies beat me!
If I couldn't buy a decent tasting cookie, then by golly, I was going to make one!
I scoured the internet looking for a recipe that was easy and fast.
I needed a moist pumpkin chocolate chip cookie! STAT!

After a few hours of searching, I found the golden ticket.
And now,  I am sharing my little golden ticket with you.
Please, I beg of you,  treat this recipe with kindness and love,
for it has been oh-so kind to me. :)
