It’s been awhile since I have posted a pumpkin recipe. I thought I would give you all a break from my pumpkin madness. I went kind of crazy with the pumpkin this year:) I made these Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with Dried Cranberries & Chocolate Chips a few weeks ago and have been waiting impatiently to share the recipe. I couldn’t wait any longer because these cookies are super scrumptious and a good recipe is meant for sharing.
These cookies have all of my favorite ingredients-pumpkin, oatmeal, Fall spices, dried cranberries, and chocolate chips. Of course I love these cookies right out of the oven, who doesn’t like a freshly baked cookie? But my favorite way to enjoy these cookies is right out of the freezer. I put a bag of cookies in the back of our freezer, in hopes that I would forget they were there. Well, my cookie cravings got the best of me and I broke into the bag of frozen Pumpkin Oatmeal cookies. Big mistake because now I am addicted to them. My bag is running low and it will be a sad day when they are gone.
Hopefully, the cookies will last until Thanksgiving because I know I am baking a batch for “Turkey Day.” I know Thanksgiving dessert is usually all about the pie, but not at our house. Sure, we have pie, but we also have cookies. A holiday celebration is not complete without cookies and I am sure these Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with Dried Cranberries and Chocolate Chips will get gobbled up in no time. If they don’t, fine by me, I will put the leftovers in the freezer for my own secret stash:)
