Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

In order to control consumption, I just bake a few at a time. These are exceptionally good, and more healthy than traditional oatmeal cookies. By adding pumpkin and increasing the oats, I was able to reduce the butter and sugar in the original recipe.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon organic ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon organic ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons organic ground ginger
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup flour for rolling surface
  • Icing and assorted candies to decorate

Instructions

  1. In large bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. Set aside.

  2. In second large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer until soft (about 1 min). Add sugar; beat until fluffy. Add eggs, molasses and vanilla; beat until combined. Gradually add flour mixture—beat as much as you can with the mixer. Stir in remaining with a spoon. Cover. Chill overnight.

  3. Preheat oven to 375° F. On lightly floured surface, roll dough to about 1/8" thickness. Cut using cookie cutters. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet, 1" apart. Create a ball from remaining dough; pat with flour to prevent sticking. Repeat.
  4. Bake 6 mins, or until edges are firm and bottoms light brown. Cool cookies on a wire rack. Decorate.
