Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies & Chocolate Chip Cookies


Ingredients:
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups quick oats 
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1 cup unsalted butter 
1 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin puree 
1 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (don't be afraid to add more..a little more chocolate never hurt anyone!) 

How-to: 
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, oats, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. In another bowl, whip together butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Add the egg, vanilla extract and pumpkin puree. Slowly add in the dry ingredients and then chocolate chips on top! I let these bake for about 15 minutes, the recipe made about 4 dozen. 



Tip: Use an ice-cream scooper to get the perfect little pumpkin cookies.
