One Can of Pumpkin, Two Recipes

Hey cupcakes! I was craving my fav cookies recently (Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies!), so I decided to buy a can of pumpkin puree.... I know, I know, pumpkin is totally a fall flavor, but I absolutely LOVE Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies ;)
With the one can of pumpkin, I could make two amazing treats:
1. 32 Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies
2. Pumpkin Smoothie

Here are the delicious recipes:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

-1 cup of pumpkin puree
-1 cup sugar
-1/2 cup canola oil
-1 egg
-2 cups flour
-2 tsp. baking powder
-2 tsp. cinnamon
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1 tsp. baking soda
-1 tsp. milk
-1 tbsp vanilla extract
-2 cups of chocolate chips

1. In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin puree, sugar, oil, and egg.
2. In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Dissolve the baking soda in the milk and add to the mixture.
3. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients until fully combined. Add vanilla and chocolate chips.
4. Drop by the spoonful onto a greased cookie sheet (I could make 32 cookies with the batter). Bake at 350 degrees for approx. 10 minutes or until golden brown (mine took about 12-13 minutes).
