Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

OK, you asked for recipes, and I just got a great new one that you'll love. If you are a fan of the Pumpkin Cookies that I make (and I know many of you are), then you will like this one too! My mom made these and brought us some extras. They are delicious. She made hers into mini muffins, and I think they are perfect like that. Yummy!!
