Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

My husband comes home from work the other day and announces that he's just had the most amazing pumpkin cookie and that I HAVE to make it! Uuuum, okay. Can I get some details please?

The recipe came from an old high-school couple/friends of ours that Rob works with. He was so anxious for this recipe, he actually called the wife of the co-worker/h.s. friend to ask for it personally rather than wait for me to call her. I made the cookies and they were *poof* gone in an afternoon! Since I am making another batch today, I thought I would share the recipe with you. If you make them, please let me know what you think. (Can be doubled)
