Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

All about pumpkin continues with this fabulous 
fall cookie for October. What could be better
 than a cookie loaded with oatmeal, chocolate
 chips, pumpkin, and pumpkin spices?
Cookies that make you go mmmmmmm!
Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl ;
 flour, oats, sugars, spices, soda , and salt.
Whisk to mix the dry.
In another bowl combine the wet ingredients;
 1-1/2 stick softened butter, pumpkin, egg, 
and vanilla. 
A stand mixer would be best if you have one,
 but you can use a hand mixer.
 Beat well.
 Combine with the dry ingredients, then mix in
 a 12oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips.
That's about 2 C, but you can add up to 1 C
more if you want lots of chocolate.
Drop unto a greased cookie sheet.
Bake @375º for about 16-20 minutes,
depending on how big you make them.
This recipe came from my friend Liz. Her grown
boys have been requesting these cookies every
 holiday since they were little. Liz picked up the
 recipe on a school trip to an apple orchard when
her oldest was 5. It was love at first bite.
They are now a fall family tradition.
Makes them taste even better.
I love them warm from the oven, so I bake up
a batch for the day and refrigerate the rest of the
cookie dough. Then I scoop out by tablespoonful as
the cravings arrive. Makes about 3 dozen.
