Meatless Monday - Pumpkin Chip Cookies

Hi Everybody, I hope you had a great weekend. Thanks again to Jamie for swapping, that was fun! Well, for me it officially feels like Thanksgiving is right around the corner. I've felt a little "off" about it because I won't be home for Thanksgiving. I'm super excited to go to Las Vegas, and see my family, but I'm so used to preparing a big Thanksgiving meal, that without it,  it just didn't feel like Thanksgiving was coming. Well, these cookies fixed that right up. They're all pumpkiny (and I don't really even like pumpkin) with a wee bit of spice, and they fill the house with that wonderful Thanksgivingy smell. Now I have it all - Thanksgiving aroma, chill in the air, and most importantly family (I'll miss you Nalls). I'm all set!

Pumpkin Chip Cookies

2 1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 sticks Earth Balance Margarine
1 1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
3 tsp powdered egg replacer
4 tbsp warm water
1 tsp vanilla extract
10 oz. vegan chocolate chips
1 cup toasted pecans

Combine the flour, baking powder, and spice. In a separate bowl mix the margarine, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, and the vanilla, until fluffy. Combine the egg replacer and the water, once combined, add to the moist ingredients and stir.  Mix the dry ingredients, moist ingredients, chips, and the pecans together. Put spoonfuls of the batter onto a greased baking sheet, and bake in a 300 degree oven for about 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on them, they are done when firm and slightly golden brown. Pumkiny deliciousness!
