Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Fall is in the air.  At least for today, because according to weather.com it will be hot again tomorrow.  But I couldn't help breaking out the fall recipes.  I am so ready to bundle up, drink hot chocolate, and get in the holiday spirit.  These pumpkin cookies are the best that I have ever had.  They are full of spice, chocolate, and that fall pumpkin goodness.  They are also ridiculously soft and huge, so kids will love them.  And so will you.
