It feels like fall when I make these cookies. Pumpkin is enhanced with cranberries and chocolate chips for a nice change from regular chocolate chip cookies. You could also substitute pureed butternut squash or sweet potatoes for the pumpkin, or white chocolate for the semi-sweet chocolate chips if you'd like, and they'd still be delicious!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These soft cookies taste of fall! Packed with pumpkin spice, oats, and fresh cranberries, they are cake-like with a little chewiness. We thoroughly enjoyed these easy-to-make cookies.
