Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

** Thank you everyone for your support.  My son is in surgery today for a triplane ankle fracture which is a very serious break.  I will post an update on how the surgery went as soon as I'm able.  In the meantime, I can't tell you how much I appreciate the prayers and positive thoughts you've sent his way!  **

Many of  you have requested I re-post my (very famous) Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe again this year.  I'm happy to do so.  They're easy to make!

In a separate bowl combine the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.

Gradually add dried ingredients to the creamed mixture.

If you would like some plain pumpkin cookies (which, by the way, are excellent with coffee for breakfast!) you can remove some of the dough at this point before adding the chocolate chips in.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Spoon large tablespoons of dough onto an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 10 -12 minutes.

Cool on baking rack.

These are excellent warm out of the oven.  You can also warm them for a few seconds in the microwave the next day to make the chocolate all melty and yummy again.  

The recipe makes a large quantity!

Enjoy!

    Oh, no! I’m so sorry you have to go thru this with your son! What a month you’re having. At least you already have the best professionals on your speed-dial, right?
    Take care of yourself so your arm isn’t too sore or behind when you get thru this latest ordeal.
    Those cookies look deadly. And fabulous!

    Geez, maybe I should move your feed to my food blog folder. These look great! And you got me to make chicken stock last weekend, too.
    Best wishes for your son today. At least you know you’ve got the best possible doc on the case!

    Good luck to your son. You know, of course, that after I read your post yesterday I saw on the news that the NFL is dealing with all the issues around retired football players and their 19x increased chances of dementia. I think your son is getting out of football just in time. Although I am sure he doesn’t feel that way, and I do not in any way mean to take his injury lightly. As for your cookies, why ever would I take the chocolate chips out? Chocolate is the breakfast of champions. Best wishes 24. We love you.

    My best to your son and you too. I know that all of this must be incredibly difficult, after all the other stuff that has transpired this month. I know PR won’t see it this way, but this could be a blessing in disguise. I am sure he is good hands with your doctor.
