 We could not let the season for pumpkin go by without doing a pumpkin post.

First we have Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. The recipe for these cookies are found right on Nestle's site. There are very good. I came across this recipe while looking at other recipes there. The link for there cookies can be found here.

I got the pumpkin puree and the chocolate chips from Trader Joe's.

With the leftover pumpkin I had from the making the cookies, I used to make Pumpkin Pancakes.

I found the recipe on Pinterest, which is what I usually do now when looking for a recipe.

It did taste like a pumpkin pie in a pancake. I ended up making only a half a batch because I only had half of the pumpkin the recipe called for. Which is o.k. because I will be the only one eating these pancakes. No one else with touch pumpkin unless it is in that traditional pumpkin pie.

Because the only other pumpkin anyone really wants is pumpkin pie, I tend to not do a lot of pumpkin post, but here are some like pumpkins recipes that I did in the past that are likely to made again:

I initially did a post about this back in Aug 2011. My son made this pie for school back in 2008. It is so good. He had asked to make it again this year.

I did this post in Oct 2014. I created it based off the Dreamy Apple Butter Pumpkin Pie, except it has a cream cheese layer on the bottom. This is really good too. I am likely going to be making this dessert again.

2 Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie

I have seen the 2 Minute, 2 Hour, and 2 Day cookie video put out by Tasty and found it interesting. When I make chocolate chip cookies I follow the Toll House recipe. The one found on the back of the Nestle Chocolate Chip Bag. You could not go wrong with the Nestle Tool House Cookie Recipe.

The cookie I was interested in was the 2 Minute recipe. After all, I don't want to make a whole batch of cookies when I only need one (or two).

I ended up cutting the recipe in half. If you made the whole recipe, you would need an 8 inch plate.

So how did it taste? It was good enough to satisfy a chocolate chip cookie craving. My cookie stuck to the plate. It might of been because it needed to cook a little long, but I did not want to overcook it either. I ended up eating mine with a spoon.

So you can find the two minute recipe here.
