Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Does anyone have any fun plans for Halloween? Instead this party I celebrate "la Castanyada", you can have a look to this last year post to know more about that. Even is quite long time I'm not living in my town any more, I try to continue this tradition, but of course is imposible to avoid other influences, and also in the Netherlands you can find almost everywhere stuff for that day. So but is pumpkin season and this week is a perfect excuse to show you and other pumpkin recipe.

Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies 
makes 28 cookies
300 g all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
250 g golden caster sugar
115 g butter at room temperature
1 large egg
100 g pumpkin puree
200 g chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 180 and line 2 trays with baking paper.
Sift the first 8 ingredients and set aside. Using an electric mixer cream the butter and the sugar until fluffy and light. Add the egg and the vanilla extract and beat until well combined. Add the pumpkin puree and mix it well. Add the sifted ingredients gradually and beat until just combined. Finally stir in the chocolate chips and mix it with a spatula. Using and ice cream scoop make balls and place them on the baking trays. Gently flatten each ball of dough and now it's time to add some extra chips on top. Leave about 8 cm between cookies to allow for spread.  Bake for 10 minutes until they just begin to firm up. Remove from the oven, wait one minute before transfering on a wire rack to cool completely. The cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 3 days.
