Grandma Smith’s Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

My Grandma Smith’s Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies, by far, are my favorite cookies.  My girls seem to really love them too and out of all of the cookies I made last week, they’ll be the first to disappear.
My Grandma Smith used to make these cookies at Christmas time to share with her family and they were so awesome.  She stored them in a room off of her kitchen that always remained cooler then the rest of the house.  They were always fresh and oh so wonderful.
Now I make these yummy cookies for my girls each year.  However, no matter what I do they don’t hold a candle to hers.
Today, I’m sharing her recipe with all of you, so you too can enjoy these yummy cookies.
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you try my Grandma’s cookies.  If you do, I would love to know how they turned out.
