Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Tonight we are headed to a "Halloween Party" at a friend's house, complete with a costume contest! My boys are going to be minions from the movie, "Despicable Me." I sure hope they win! We were all asked to provide a side dish or dessert tonight, so I went with the later. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Ghirardelli Chocolate Chips. To. Die. For. They are super moist and soft in the middle with the best tasting chocolate ever! Here is the recipe.
