Cookie Friday: Pumpkins and Everything Cookies

Stinky will eat these, but these are really a hide-them-from-the-kids-they're-so-good-you-want-them-all-for-yourself kind of cookie. We made these for friends over for a movie night, and the plate needed to be refilled before the end of the movie. The chocolate chips can be replaced with raisins, nuts, or left out altogether. Give them a try!

Pumpkins and Everything Cookies

1 cup flour
1 1/4 cup quick oats
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Mix first six ingredients separately, set aside. Mix butter, sugars, egg, vanilla and pumpkin with blender, then add dry ingredients slowly. Manually stir in chocolate chips. Drop 1-2 inch balls onto greased cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes, or until tops are no longer sticky. Move to cooling rack. Makes about 2 dozen.

Mmm. I need to get some pumpkin. And I need to make some cookies. Not necessarily in that order, but both should be done, and soon.
