Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

3 Nov

I wanted to make something fall-ish and pumpkin-y….are they words? I dont think so, but we’ll just go with it!

The batter came together easily and as soon as I whipped them up and doled them out on cookie sheets, I knew they would be good.

They are very cakey in texture. I think the pumpkin taste could be a bit stronger…..maybe a smidge more of the nutmeg maybe?

This batch of delicious goodies went with me to work for some team meetings…..And it was devoured in 2 days. ‘Nuff said.
