I love Fall!
I love all things Pumpkin!
If you've been around for a while you also know...
I love Oats!
These Pumpkin, Oatmeal +Chocolate Chip Cookies were inevitable, they had to happen. You know what? They happened twice already. Two weeks in a row.
Also - I just found out that Sweet Girl brought some to school and told everyone at lunch that her mom was making these for the fall party - then she gave them a taste and they liked it! I was a bit surprised because not all kids will eat a pumpkin cookie -or an oatmeal cookie for that matter. I guess they liked them! I guess I will be making a double batch for the fall party.
You know what else is good? Taking two of these awesome cookies and sandwiching some pumpkin ice cream in between them....oh yeah!
I made a small change to the original recipe, it called for 1 cup of butter and I used 1/2 cup of butter and subbed 1/2 cup of Apple Butter for the rest.
recipe adapted from Tasty Kitchen
