E. Michigan Tailgate

Leave a comment

#52 on the 101 list is to take a different item to every football tailgate. Saturday, Vandy played Eastern Michigan. It was a night game…a.k.a. alllll day to tailgate. Although it was a hot day in mid-October, we set up early, ate some delicious food, played a little cornhole, and hopped around to visit friends in different tents. This is my favorite time of year because what does fall mean? Pumpkin. And I never get tired of pumpkin recipes. Perfect for tailgating were Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies and they are to die for.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup pumpkin

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup oil

1 egg

2 cups flour

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. milk

1 cup chocolate chips (I use dark chocolate)

1 tsp. vanilla


1. Dissolve the baking soda in the milk and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, add pumpkin, sugar, oil, and egg. Stir.

3. Add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda mixture. Mix well.

4. Stir in chocolate chips and vanilla.

5. Spoon onto cookie sheet.

6. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until done.
