Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

So I have a confession to make.  I love pumpkin and I like to hoard my cans of pumpkin. Its one of those things that I buy because I love, but I never want to use because I want to save it for a special occasion. My husband's work team isn't the most special time, but we wanted to butter up to his supervisor. I hope they like them. I think they are very tasty and honestly the best cookies I have made since I have been married (only three months) but now that I think about it I think they are the only cookies I have made since I have been married, but still tasty nonetheless.
