* I use baby oatmeal, a throwback to when our daughter was young and I thought it might be healthier. Makes the cookie softer, perhaps too soft for some tastes. But it’s a favorite.

  1. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  2. Cream butter, gradually add sugars, beating until light & fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix well.
  3. Alternate additions of dry ingredients & pumpkin, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 10 – 15 minutes.
