Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Hi everyone! It's that time of year again- pumpkin everything! I've actually never made a whole lot of pumpkin stuff myself but I had a can of pumpkin puree just sitting in the cupboard and decided to bake on a nice rainy day. They are so simple, moist, and delicious!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk the flour, oats, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger and set aside. Then whip together the butter (or crisco), granulated sugar, and brown sugar until creamy. Add the eggs, pumpkin puree, and vanilla extract and blend in. Add the dry ingredients and blend together. Mix in the chocolate chips and if you would like the pecans or walnuts. Use about 1 1/2 inch balls when placing on the cookie sheet. You can use parchment paper if you would like but my cookie sheets worked well on their own. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!!
