Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Moist and delicious cookies -- rave reviews from everyone. It's originally from the Food Network, but I tweeked it just a bit and this is what I got:

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies:

1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
1/2 cup of margarine
1 cup of white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 can pumpkin
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 cups (12 ounce bag) semi sweet chocolate chips
Nonstick spray

Heat the over to 350 degrees F and spray cookies sheets with nonstick spray. Using a mixer, beat the butter and margarine until smooth. Beat in the white and brown sugars, a little at time, until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs 1 at a time, the mix int he vanilla and pumpkin. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. Slowly beat the flour mixture into the batter, then stir in the chips. Scoop the cookie dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheets and bake for 20 minutes, or until the bookies are lightly brown around the edges. Remove the cookie sheets from the oven and let them rest for 2 minutes. Take the cookies off with a spatula and cook them on wire racks.

This recipe made me about 60-65 cookies.
WW: 2 points per cookie.

I'll post a picture soon!
