Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

This is the perfect recipe for the fall weather. It makes a lot of cookies--around 4 dozen, so it's great for sharing with friends and neighbors.

3 c. sugar
3 c. canned pumpkin
1 1/2 c. shortening
3 tbsp. orange peel
6 c. flour
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tbsp. baking soda
1 tbsp. cinnamon
3/4 tsp. salt
1 c. chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix sugar, pumpkin, shortening, and orange peel. Add the rest of the ingredients. Bake 8-10 minutes.

Mix together:
3 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. margarine
1 tbs. milk
(optional--3 oz. cream cheese) It's amazing with the cream cheese. I would definitely recommend adding it in.
