The Twelve Days of Goodies - Day 2

Welcome back for day 2. Now these next cookies I made for our Thanksgiving dinner, but I thought they could be a different flavor for a Christmas cookie. Who says pumpkin needs to be limited to just Halloween and Thanksgiving. So here is the recipe for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies. Sadly I had forgotten to take the step by step pictures, but rest assured, these are made pretty much like standard chocolate chip cookies, and therefore very easy.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup canned pumpkin
1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.

In a bowl, combine the flour, oats, baking soda and cinnamon, set aside. In another bowl, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the flour mixture alternatively with the pumpkin into the creamed mixture. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Drop, with a scoop or with teaspoons on to a baking tray. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.

The recipe should yield about 4 dozen. The family really enjoyed these and I will definitely be making them again.
