Foodie Friday~ The Great Pumpkin Cookie

Happy Friday Sunday sweet friends!

I totally started this post Friday and had every intention of publishing it on time, but I got busy and had to go to work- forgive me!
Okay so after failing to post Foodie Friday for probably three weeks (#failure) I finally had time to bake the cookies! 

Ladies and Gents... these cookies are the, literally. These pumpkin cookies are without a doubt my favorite cookies ever. Ever. Ever. Seriously, I am stuffing my face as I type. 

Since I can remember, my mom has been making these cookies every single October/November. Back in the day, these were the cookies we would give our teachers for their Halloween/fall treat. (Is that still a thing to bring homemade presents to a teacher? If not, it should be). You should be generous and make these for your loved ones and I promise they will love you forever.

Without further adieu I give to you the famous Great Pumpkin Cookie!


4 c of flour
2 c of oatmeal
3 t of baking soda
2 t of ground cinnamon
1 t salt
1 1/2 c of margarine (softened)
2 c of firmly packed brown sugar 
1 c sugar
1 egg
1 t vanilla
1- 16 ounce can of pumpkin
1 c of chocolate chips 

Preheat oven to 350
Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and set aside
Cream butter, gradually adding in the sugars, until light and fluffy
Add egg and vanilla, mixing well 
Alternate additions of dry mix and pumpkin, mixing well between each  
Stir in chocolate chips
Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheet
Bake for 13-15 minutes, until firm and lightly browned

Enjoy and let your life be changed!

  5. Mmmm, these look delicious! I haven't had any pumpkin cookies yet this Fall. I need to get on that!

    1. Thank you Jenna! Pumpkin cookies are definitely a must for me every single fall. They are really just so yummy and I can't imagine a fall without them. Ha!

  6. These are ABSOLUTELY my favorite cookie of all time. They're not overly sweet, but that can become a problem because then I eat too many!! I'm glad I have some sort of cooking tradition that I've passed down!! :)

    1. Thanks mom! I agree, I eat way too many of them when we make them. I am so thankful for you distilling this tradition in me. The tradition will continue to be passed down:)
