Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

Each week I think about what pumpkin recipes I want to make, there are just so many! I have a binder (old school pinterest) of all my tried and true pumpkin recipes, and Lord knows I want to make all of them in one weekend!  I can’t, I would eat them all and that’s not a good idea! This pumpkin cookie is a must, and I’m sure I’ll make it a few time before the year is over. Its moist, full of pumpkin flavor and the added chocolate chips just puts it over the edge for me. I must say that using good cinnamon is very important to enhance the pumpkin flavor. I use Vietnamese Cinnamon ( you can buy on amazon). Its worth the little extra cost for all your pumpkin recipes.

My little trip to the pumpkin patch of course was the inspiration I needed to come home and start the mixer for a pumpkin creation!
