Thanks for posting this! My husband's family has a traditional Pumpkin choc. chip birthday cake recipe, and I have been unable(afraid to try, really)< because it has 4 eggs. I just do not think things work with 4 eggs to replace! Maybe I can try doing these cookies for dd, and some(or all) with raisins for her choc. allergic cousin, then still do the cake for the rest! The two allergic kids will have nearly the same thing, flavor wise! Looks great! becca

Becca...I made them today for a party in my neighborhood (wanted something that DS could have) and they were gone very quickly...so I guess everyone liked them. Good Luck...I think they'd be really good w/ raisins.

These are delicious! Graham (2.5 yrs old) and I made them together and then ate them like we were piglets. She loves them so much when we went to the grocery store, she tossed pumpkin cans into the cart and told me they were for "yummy cookies."

BS312 - How do you make homemade chocolate chips?

Nopeanuts- Homemade chocolate chips are easy and last for a while in the freezer. Melt 8 ounces Hershey's unsweetened baking chocolate with 1/4 cup plus 1 tsp Crisco in the microwave. Stir together. Add 1/8 tsp vanilla extract. Add 2 cups confectioner's sugar. Mix. You may have to knead with your hands. Spread out in a 13 x 9 inch pan. Freeze. Break into chips (we use a combination of a ballpeen hammer and food processor). This recipe is an adaptation of the FAAN recipe for dark chocolate bark. Enjoy!

Thanks for the chocolate chip recipe! We have actually made the chocolate bark that was in the FAAN newsletter and enjoyed that so these should be good!

I made these last year. They are sooo good and I think they would freeze well. My dh wasn't that wild about them so I ate most of them. At the time I was avoiding dairy, eggs, nuts, and a host of other things while nursing ds.
I highly recommend these.
