When my kids were younger, we would always fix chocolate chip cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve. Santa had informed us on one of our meetings at the mall that chocolate chip is his favorite. I'm absolutely positive that the Jolly Ole Elf would be just as happy with these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies.
