(Ch.O.P.)Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies

Our Women of Grace group has started up again. This year, two sweet friends and I have the privilege of leading a group of ten 3rd to 4th grade girls focusing on God's great love for them and how that can and should impact their everyday lives. In addition to Bible study, we help them with homework, do some crafts and cooking, service projects and have snacks together. Because this recipe makes a lot, I brought these (CH.O.P.) Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies to the group to enjoy this week. Even those girls who were skeptical of the pumpkin were happy to take extras. 

Here's what you need: butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egg, canned pumpkin, vanilla, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, flour, oatmeal, and chocolate chips.
Packed with a lot of fall flavor, these soft cookies are the perfect treat to bring to your autumn get togethers.

2 cups packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (15oz.) can packed pumpkin
1 (12 oz.) package chocolate chips
4 cups flour
2 cups rolled oats
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Mix in egg, vanilla and pumpkin. In separate bowl, stir together flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter/sugar mixture. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoon onto parchment or baking mat lined pan. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
I seem to have a thing for pumpkin flavored cookies. My kiddos love them too. My son was pretty sad that the CHOP Cookies were all gone after our Women of Grace Group. I guess I'll need to make another big batch. Here are some of our other favorites:
I've said it before and I'll say it again...I love this time of year. The sights of changing leaves and smells of pumpkin packed goodies do my heart good. Do you bake much with pumpkin? Is it a year round thing, or do you just use it in fall and winter? Thanks for stopping by today!

I'm linking up at some of these great parties and
