Pumpkin Recipe Inspiration

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is “Fresh From The Pumpkin Patch” to showcase there is so much more to this food than pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin bread (even though those are delicious, too!). While my last pumpkin recipe was a bit more outside of the box {and super easy, too}, this one is what I’ve been turning to when I’ve had extra pumpkin left after my other recipes. Plus, it’s something I’m sure ALL of you will enjoy… I mean, add chocolate chips and who is upset?! So, when you’ve got some leftover pumpkin purée in the fridge, grab this simple recipe and enjoy some fluffy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
