Pumpkin Peanut Butter Chip Cookies

I know what you're thinking. "Pumpkin? Peanut butter? What are you thinking?" But, I swear, I haven't completely gone off the deep end. Not yet, at least. ;)

The flavors actually really compliment each other. It's a very home-y taste, a comforting taste. And while they might not be the most visually-appealing (they don't change shape much), they're usually the ones people like the most. I'm not sure if it's because of the pumpkin or the pb. Either way, I like it when people compliment my stuff. :)

2¼ cups all-purpose flour
1½ tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 can (15 oz.) Libby's 100% Pure Pumpkin
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups (12 oz. pkg.) peanut butter morsels

Preheat oven to 375F. Grease baking sheets.

Combine flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in medium bowl.

Beat butter and sugar in large mixing bowl until creamy. Beat in pumpkin, eggs, and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Makes about 5 dozen.
