Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Spice Cookies

O how I love pumpkin and mouth is watering just writing this....too bad I made these cookies a week ago and they are all gone! I know I didn't get this love from my mom because she is absolutely DISGUSTED by the though of these cookies! Why, I don't know. They fill all of my requirements for deliciousness: Chocolate, check. Puffy cookies, check. My husband won't touch them, check. (More for ME ME ME!) These are a pumpkin SPICE cookie, so if you are looking for a straight up pumpkin cookie, these are not it!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Spice Cookies

1/4 lb. butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 cup pumpkin
2 cups flour
2 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. baking soda

These cookies sound delicious! Does the recipe really call for 1/4 pound of butter, or is it 1/4 cup? Can't wait to try them out!
