Fall Into Flavor…Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (gluten free, of course!)

The lovely lady who is responsible for the 2ed-cup -of -coffee blog (she’s got a great sense of humor and a refreshing take on things!) has a posted a great idea: Sharing a favorite fall recipe every Monday. With the whole Gluten Free problem, I will have to alter a lot of the really yummy recipes I’ve seen while blog-hopping through some of the great blogs participating in the Fall Into Flavor endeavor….but hey, new ideas are always great! Here’s my contribution (and yes, I know it’s not Monday…but hey, you never know what tomorrow will bring and I have a quiet moment right now so….)

Gluten Free Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

½ cup butter
1 cup white sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar

2 eggs, slightly beaten
1 cup pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
1 ½ cups white rice flour
3/4 cup tapioca starch
1 ¼ tsp xanthan gum
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp ginger
½ tsp salt
½ cup chocolate chips

In large mixing bowl beat together butter and sugars; add eggs, pumpkin and vanilla. Mix until well blended.

In medium mixing bowl combine dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and or nuts. Drop by spoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. (adapted from a recipe I found on cookingcache.com).
