Great way to kick off fall...Pumpkin Chip Cookies

These were a huge hit this week, as pumpkin marks the beginning of fall in my book!

1 1/2 cups butter, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
4 cups flour
2 cups quick cooking oats
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 cups chocolate chips 
(I used mini chips)

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  In mixing bowl, combine butter and sugars.  Beat in pumpkin, vanilla, and egg.
3.  Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in another mixing bowl.  Gradually add to creamed mixture.
4.  Stir in chocolate chips.
5.  Drop dough by tablespoons, about 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
6.  Bake for about 10-12 minutes.
7.  Allow to cool on wire racks.

Allow to melt in mouth!




  1. Since I just picked up some cans of pumpkin I guess I'm just going to have to go ahead and make these...!

  2. I have got to make these. They look too yummy for words!

    I sent you an invite to post for me tomorrow about the football game appetizer. Did you forget about it? If so, no biggie just let me know. Or you could even use something you've already done on yours.
