Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know that just about everyone has a recipe for these, but they are a fall favorite. Both my kids couldn't wait for Family Home Evening to be over so they could gobble them up. So, here is the recipe I used. The funny thing is that I have to look for a recipe for these everytime I make them. I got this one from all recipies. IT seemed like your average cookie. So tell me if this is what your recipe looks like.

1 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (11/2 tsp.)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used dark chips..yum!)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional) (I didn't use them)

Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oil, and egg. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda with the milk and stir in. Add flour mixture to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop by spoonful on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for approximately 10 minutes or until lightly brown and firm.

I checked the recipe I have (i don't know where I got it it might be Kathies?) but the only differences were mine uses shortening and nutmeg and raisens which I dont like the raisens but my family does.
