Oatmeal Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies


Apparently my love of fall is not just limited to decorating, but has also grown to include the flavors of fall.  I have seriously grown to love pumpkin.  It doesn't match my love of cheesecake, but it's up there and it's tied with anything caramel and apples.

I combined 2 or 3 different recipes to make these oatmeal pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  I love the flavor of the chocolate and the pumpkin mixed together, but these would also be fantastic with just the pumpkin flavor alone. 

Oatmeal Pumpkin Chocolate ChipCookies
2 1/2 c. quick-cooking oatmeal
2 c. flour, spooned and leveled
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
1 1/4 c. lightly packed light brown sugar
1 c. sugar
1 T. vanilla extract
1 c. pumpkin puree
2 t. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 t. cinnamon
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1 and 1/2 t. cornstarch
1/2 t. salt
3/4 c. (1.5 stick) butter, melted
1 and 1/2 c. chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray cookie sheets with non-stick spray or line with parchment paper.

In a large mixing place the flour, baking soda, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice all together.

In a separate bowl, mix together the melted butter, light brown sugar and white sugar.  Mix until no brown sugar lumps remain.  Whisk in the egg, the egg yolk and the vanilla extract. Mix in the pumpkin.   Combine the dry ingredients and the wet ingredients.

Mix in the chocolate chips and oatmeal.  Allow to chill in the refrigerator for 1 hour.

Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 11-12 minutes. Let stand for approximately 3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
