Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

I love baking with pumpkin!  It is so good in desserts like these cookies!  With these, chocolate chip cookies get a Fall twist with pumpkin and warming spices!  They also happen to be vegan but you would never guess by tasting them.  They are easy to make and so good!
