These moist soft cookies are irresistible and no one can eat just one.


Also a smart and healthy snack as this contains pumpkin which is full of beta carotene and plenty of oatmeal for fibre.  These can also be made with mini morsels, but use only half the amount of morsels called for in the recipe.  This will reduce the fat some with absolutely no loss of chocolaty goodness.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookes

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg, pumpkin and vanilla.  Combine flour, oats, baking soda and cinnamon in a separate bowl; mix well.

Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture, mixing well.  Fold in chocolate chips.

Drop by heaping tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 for 13-15 min, or until golden brown around the edges.  Let sit on sheet for one minute.  Remove to rack to cool completely.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
