Cookies for the Season...

I found this recipe at Run Betty Run's blog and since it looked pretty good, I did what any cookie lover would do - I forwarded it to our office receptionist and said "boy, these cookies look really good". Magically, a batch appeared on my desk the very next day...just like the carrot cake did a few weeks ago. I'll say it again...I LOVE that girl.

Anyhow, in the event you want to give them a try, they are really easy to make (so I'm told) and I have a first hand account of their tastiness.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 C whole-wheat flour
1 C ground quick oats
1 T cinnamon
2 T cornstarch
1 t fine sea salt
1 t baking powder
1/2 C butter
1 1/2 C sugar
1/2 C pumpkin purée
1 T pure vanilla extract
1 C chocolate chips

In a medium bowl, blend flour, oats, cinnamon, cornstarch, salt, and baking powder.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Stir in pumpkin and vanilla until combined.

Fold dry ingredients into wet, until combined. Stir in chips.

Place cookies on parchment paper lined cookie sheets, and flatten your cookies as much as you like.

Cover with plastic wrap and refridgerate for as long as you can stand it: 3 hours is ideal, longer is better.

Preheat oven to 350°F. Bake cookies for 17 minutes, or until golden on top and around the edges. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Yields about 24 medium cookies


Enjoy! If you feel the need to share, I'd be a willing recipient of your generosity.

Update: Dough is made (delicious!) and now I have to wait while it's in the fridge.

Now that, my friend, is an exercise in patience.
