1 1/3 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
1 egg, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/3 cup salted, shelled, roasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
Preheat oven to 350. Line 3 cookie sheets with parchment paper. Whisk together the flour, salt, and baking powder in a medium bowl. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla and combine thoroughly. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until a very thick dough forms. Fold in the chips and pepitas. Form cookies by dropping 1 teaspoon of dough on the sheet two inches apart. Flatten slightly then bake for 12 minutes. Let cool on wire racks.
