Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Creme Pies

Oh. My. Goodness.  These turned out so so yummy! The pumpkin craze continues!

I was inspired to find a creme pie cookie recipe after a friend from school made homemade oatmeal creme pies one day last week.  (Check out Ashely’s blog, its so cute!) I got this recipe from the Tasty Kitchen, and these sure were tasty! The original recipe didn’t have chocolate chips, but I figured why not? Who doesn’t love a little chocolate?

This is such a great pumpkin recipe! Not to mention, making these were a great distraction from studying orthodontics.

Here’s the recipe, enjoy!!
