IDAHO and NEVADA-Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

A new recipe for Our Cookie Nation Series and once again it is a recipe for pumpkin cookies!
The most viewed recipe from the state's of Idaho and Nevada via Readers Digest and is Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III (I do love these neighboring states...ummmm pumpkin).
These are good cookies, the recipe reminded me of the type my mom and grandma used to make, the true old fashioned, from scratch kind, and they are perfect for the fall weather!
Grade:  B+

1 c. canned pumpkin
1 c. white sugar
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 egg
2 c. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. milk
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 c. chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine pumpkin, sugar, vegetable oi., and egg.  In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, ground cinnamon, and salt. In a small bowl or measuring cup dissolve the baking soda in the milk, and stir.  Add the baking soda mix and the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture and mix well.
Add vanilla, chocolate chips and nuts.
Drop by spoonful onto greased or parchment lined baking sheets and bake for approximately 10 minutes, or until lightly brown and firm (I found that I had to bake the cookies for 12-13 minutes).
Cool on wire racks.
