I made this with the ingredients stated, except that I added the vanilla with the egg, pumpkin, et cetera. I used a small cookie scoop which produced small little button like cookies; these cookies do not spread much, if at all. The texture of the dough is wet and is not suitable for pressing down with glass or fingers. I tried to refrigerate dough, hoping to firm it up, but to no avail. When I made the recipe I thought the ratio of chocolate chips seemed high and I was correct. After baking and sampling I thought there were way too many chocolate chips; next time I will halve the amount. The chips seemed to distract away from the pumpkin flavor. I do like the suggestion I read in one of the other reviews of slamming the baking sheet down on the counter a few times to spread them out a bit. Next time I will use a larger scoop. These definitely are more cake like in texture; I would store them with the lid off, or refrigerate, or they will turn to mush. This was my first attempt at a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie and it won't be my last. These were good, maybe great, but not exactly what I was looking for. I may even suggest adding some rolled oats to give a more substantial texture.
