Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and a Contest

It's snowing outside this morning! Big fat wet flakes. I'm not sure if they'll stick, it's been raining all night. I'm not ready for winter yet, I want more fall!

My family loves these cookies! They have such a nice pumpkin spice flavor and the chocolate chips, yum! I like them because they're a little different than the usual ones because they have some oatmeal in them. They make a big batch, so there are plenty to share.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

4 cups of flour
2 cups of oatmeal
2 teaspoons soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening
1/2 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups pumpkin puree
2 cups chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, whisk the dry ingredients.

In a mixer beat the butter and sugars for 3-4 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and beat well. Mix in the pumpkin, then add the dry ingredients. Mix in the chocolate chips.

Drop by cookie scoop onto cookie sheets. Bake for 12-13 minutes.

There's a great giveaway over at It's The Little Things, it's for vinyl wall art!
