Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

OK, I was craving Pumpkin Ice Cream the other day.. I was at my parents house and this is what I came up with. I know it has nothing to do with Ice Cream but It does have the pumpkin flavor :) I loved these and whats not to love about warm chocolate chips smoothered inside a pumpkin flavored cookie. I got the recipe from and it was the one with the highest rating! I wish I could take credit for the recipe, but I can't. What I can take credit for is the extra calories i WILL be giving you if you eat these :)
