Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies

This is such a yummy recipe. I love pumpkin chocolate chip cookies... but not the chunky cakey ones you get in the store. This are just like normal chocolate chip cookies...with the delicious hint of pumpkin. YUM!!!
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 C. unsalted butter, softened
1 C. white sugar
1 C. light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 C. canned pumpkin
3 C. all-purpose flour
2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground ginger
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ground cloves
2 C. milk chocolate chips
Heat the oven to 350. Spray cookie sheets with nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
Using a mixer, beat the butter until smooth. Beat in the sugars, a little at a time, until the mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs 1 at a time, then mix in the vanilla and pumpkin puree. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves. Slowly beat in the flour mixture into the batter in thirds. Stir in the chips. Scoop the cookie dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheets and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cookies are browned around the edges. Remove from oven and let them rest for 2 min. Take the cookies off with a spatula and cool on a wire rack.
