Fall = Pumpkin! I was in the fall spirit (even though it's still 90 degrees outside) and decided to make some awesome pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. It has to be the most homey cookie ever.
I like to make a big batch of these cookies and freeze the dough. You never know when you're going to need a pumpkin oatmeal chocolate chip cookie... and you need to be prepared.
Oatmeal Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies:
1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon sal
3 cups quick or old fashioned oats
1 cup chocolate chips
1 can pumpkin, not pie filling
oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of
electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add
combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt; mix well.
Add oats, chocolate chips, and pumpkin. Mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack.
