Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!

Here's a special treat for you, my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies (which sadly, I recently found out I'm sensitive/intolerant to pumpkin and all squash. [super sad face] So this is me sharing something I can no longer enjoy. [le sigh])
It's easy, painless, and fantastically delicious!

flour (normal kind, nothin' fancy)
oats (quick or slow, don't matta)
cinnamon, all spice, & nutmeg
margarine (or butter)
brown sugar
sugar (normal kind)
choc chips (honestly optional, if you're lame)

2 cups flour
1 cup oats
1 tsp cinnamon & a dash of the other spices
1/2 tsp salt

cream together in a separate bowl:
1 cup margarine softened (not frozen, refrigerated is fine)
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar

Add to the above mixture, once it is creamed (is that a word?)
1 egg (beaten before adding)
1 tsp vanilla
Mix wet and dry ingredients together.  It will be tough.

Then add 1 cup canned pumpkin.
When it is all mixed, add one cup of chocolate chips.
The cookies don't spread, so they can be spaced closely on a baking sheet and made to be whatever size you wish.  NOTE: If you make them small, reduce the baking time.  The tops don't "brown" so watch the bottoms!
[I've easily burnt a batch of these cookies.  Good news: the burnt part scrapes off easily. hehe]

Bake at 350 for about 15 minutes depending on the size of your cookies and oven.

Happy Thanksgiving!
