Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies #FilltheCookieJar during #PumpkinWeek

We are still celebrating Pumpkin Week, hosted by Terri of Love and Confections.  This annual event has been so much fun and, sadly, it is almost over.  We will be sharing our final recipes with you today and tomorrow and then put away our love of pumpkin until next week, or at least a day or two.  After all, we still have Thanksgiving coming up and pumpkin is mandatory at Thanksgiving!

I intend to come back and revisit all these wonderful recipes over the next few months. There are so many that I cannot wait to try.

Today, I am joining forces not only with the other Pumpkin Week bloggers but also with a group of friends that share their favorite cookie recipes each month as we Fill the Cookie Jar.  This great group is led by Cynthia of Feeding Big.

We meet up on the first Thursday of each month to Fill the Cookie Jar with cookies that match the theme chosen for the month.  I was happy to see that pumpkin was this months selection.  Life is so good!

This recipe that I am sharing today makes a ton of cookies.  I had enough to take for dessert when invited to a friend's house for dinner, supply cookies at a party for 40 people and still stick 3 dozen in the freezer to be enjoyed later.

They are so delicious.  If you like traditional oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, you are going to love this version with the addition of pumpkin and cinnamon.  They were a huge hit with kids and adults alike.

You will find links to both the Pumpkin Week recipes being shared today and the Fill the Cookie Jar recipes being shared this month following my recipe.  You are in for a treat!!

  1. Those sound perfect!! I am a huge oatmeal cookie fan and I know the addition of the pumpkin must be lovely. Maybe that will be a fun baking project for me and Lindsey Rose this weekend. :)
