There is just something about pumpkin chocolate chip cookies that has everyone scarfing them down.  It might be because they are thick & fluffy, it might be because of the chocolate, or it might be because of the pumpkin & spice, but all I know is all those things together makes one yummy cookie!  I dare you to just eat one!  What sets these cookies apart from all the other pumpkin chocolate chip cookie recipes?  These are fluffy & light without being dry, almost like a muffin top.  They are not dense or heavy & they don’t look wet & under-baked, like other kinds sometimes do.  So if light & cake-y is your thing, these are the cookies for you.
