Just Stop It- Pumpkin Oat-filled Chocolate Chip Cookies

Fall is here! There is something about the change of seasons that makes me want to bake. It’s like a little celebration for Fall. “Welcome! We are so glad you are here.” Last year I made a Toffee Pumpkin Cookie and a different Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookie that we all enjoyed. I wanted to try something a little different this time. These little Fall babies are full of autumn spice and happiness. We are on our 2nd batch in week two of Fall. Enjoy the changing leaves, pumpkin everything, and cooler weather. Life is worth singing and dancing about! Looking Forward!- Amanda

Just Stop It- Pumpkin Oat-filled Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups quick oats
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 t salt
1/4 t ground ginger
1 3/4 t ground cinnamon
1/4 t ground nutmeg
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/3 cups packed light-brown sugar
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 t vanilla
1 1/4 cups canned pumpkin puree
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, oats, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Set aside.
In the bowl of an electric stand mixer, whip together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until creamy. Add in egg then blend in vanilla, and pumpkin puree. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until combined. Add in chocolate chips and pecans. Let cookie dough set for 10 minutes.
Scoop dough out 2 Tbsp at a time and drop onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spacing cookies 2-inches apart. Bake for 10 minutes. You do not want to over bake. Allow to cool on baking sheet several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 5 dozen.

    Something sweet to celebrate Fall? -Or to keep you going through it as the rainy days come?
    I just found these cookies, and think they look super delicious (in that “I believe they must taste great”-way. But really they look kind of suspect), what do you think? 😀
