Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups flour
1 cup quick or old-fashioned oats, uncooked
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
3/4 cup Libby's solid pack pumpkin
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Combine flour, oats, baking soda, and salt.  Cream butter; gradually add sugars, beating until light and fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla; mix well.  Alternate additions of dry ingredients and pumpkin, mixing well after each addition.  Stir in chocolate chip.

For each cookie, drop a heaping tablespoonful of dough onto lightly greased or parchment paper covered baking sheet.  Bake 13 - 15 minutes, until cookies are firm and lightly browned.
