Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

My roommate from Colorado used to make these and whenever it gets to be fall weather I start wanting them. Very easy and yummy!

1 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
½ cup shortening
2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp. salt
chocolate chips
**I added about a tsp. of vanilla and pumpkin pie spice

Directions: Mix together the dry ingredients in a small bowl; set aside. Mix together the sugar, shortening, and canned pumpkin in a slightly larger bowl. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients. Then add in the chocolate chips. Bake at 375 for 8 – 10 min.
**Can substitute white chocolate chips or Macadamia nuts for chocolate chips or combine all three 
