Pumpkin Cookies

Christmas tended to be a little too sweet around here.  We just returned home from visiting family, and I'm back to finding life sweet enough.  Here's some cookies I whipped up tonight.

Pumpkin Cookies
1/2 cup pumpkin
3 Tbsp. butter, softened
2 Tbsp. canola oil
3/4 cup pureed prunes
1/4 cup molasses
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cloves
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. baking soda

3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
3/4 cup high cacao chocolate chips

Beat all ingredients until well blended.  Stir in pecans and chocolate chips.  Scoop onto greased cookie sheet. Bake for 12 minutes at 400 degress.
