2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin puree

4 cups flour

1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 pinch nutmeg

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F

Cream together shortening & sugar until smooth.

Beat one egg in at a time

Add pumpkin and vanilla extract.

Combine (in seperate bowl) flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

Stir into pumpkin blend.

Add chocolate chips.

Spray pan, bake 10 -15 minutes.

Then eat as many as you want because calories don’t count on holiday ;)
