Who doesn't love pumpkin??? I use it all year long. It's one of my favorite ingredients and this is one recipe that is a keeper. Such a moist, flavorful cookie, with a touch of chocolate. Absolutely delicious!! Enjoy!

This a delicious cookie! Even people that don't care for pumpkin will like this one, I think. The cookie's soft and delicate with a slight pumpkin flavor. It doesn't have the typical pumpkin spices, just cinnamon. Oats add a little texture and chocolate chips are a great complement to the pumpkin flavor. This recipe makes a lot of cookies and will be great for fall bake sales.
