My son graduated college in May. We live in Maryland. He got offered a job in Wisconsin and moved there in June. He loves my pumpkin chocolate chip cookies and I wanted to bake some and ship them to him for his birthday. Much to my dismay, there was a canned pumpkin shortage. I almost paid a fortune for a can on Ebay. Before I did that, I sent out an email to my entire office asking for everyone to check their pantries for canned pumpkin. Lo and behold two cans appeared on my desk the next day. I made the cookies and shipped them off to Wisconsin for my son's birthday.

That was very nice of them to contribute the cans of pumpkin. I'm sure they reciprocated for all your kindness to them. I'm sure your son appreciated and enjoyed the pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!

Great story and your son is lucky to have you for a Mom. You should also send him the recipe and see if he can make cookies that taste as good as yours.

Mom's will do anything for their family - you did! Sounds different these cookies - can you put it in the Swapped Recipe area? Never heard of pumpkin can shortage, at least in the Northeast there isn't.

What a great story! The trick is to buy many cans of pumpkin when available.

I just saw a display in the store yesterday with lots of canned pumpkin.  Maybe the shortage is over?

Libby's Pumpkin should be in stores around the US now!  Heavy rains last year kept production low in 2009 but 2010 harvesting started early and is still going strong!

Here in east-central Missouri, just a bit west of St. Louis, there is  canned pumpkin in the local Wal-Mart stores.
