I’m not really a plan-ahead blogger- I never have my posts scheduled out weeks in advance. I just kind of wing-it, go with my mood and what I’ve been making that week. What you see is what has most recently been baked-up, cooked-up, and eaten-up here at our house:)
But lately I’ve been making cookies like crazy. So many good cookies that I just don’t which to share first. Brett came home yesterday to Christmas music blaring and some very Christmas-y cookies fresh out of the oven….just think peppermint and chocolate and marshmallows!! I really wanted to share them with you today because they were pretty fantastic and I’m totally in the Christmas mood over here. But I’ve had these Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies ready to share for over a week now.
So before I get all Christmas-y on you, let’s talk about these beauties. Because I tend to get over my pumpkin fetish as soon as Thanksgiving is over- and that’s just over a week away. So let me get it out of my system.
After seeing Katie’s cinnamon chip scones, I knew I had to get my hands on some cinnamon chips and get baking.
Just wait until you sink your teeth into one of these!
Cinnamon Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
3/4 c butter, soft
1 c sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 c canned pumpkin
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 c flour
1 3/4 c rolled oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 c cinnamon chips
Preheat oven to 350 and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Beat butter and sugars together until creamy. Beat in egg, then vanilla and pumpkin.
In another bowl combine flour, oats, soda, nutmeg, cinnamon and salt.
Gradually add dry ingredients to wet ingredients, stirring with a wooden spoon. Stir in cinnamon chips.
Drop heaping spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets and bake for 12-13 minutes or until edges are slightly golden. Let cool for a minute or two then transfer to a cooling rack.
