Pumpkin Chip Cookies

*The ladies on my message board are going crazy over this recipe that I shared as part of our "favorite fall recipes" discussion. This recipe originated from one of Brian's co-workers (she's an excellent cook and even does some catering). I'm not much of a cookie person, but I went crazy over these~ so yummy! So, I had to ask for the recipe. I'm sure your family will love them too~ and they're perfect for this time of year. Let me know if you try them.
1 1/2 cups butter
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 15 oz. can pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 cups flour
2 cups quick-cooking oats
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate morsels

Cream butter and sugars.
Beat in the pumpkin, egg, and vanilla.
Combine the flour, oats, soda, cinnamon, and salt~ gradually add to creamed mixture.
Stir in morsels.
Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.
Makes: 10 dozen.
*The ladies have been experimenting with different flavors of chips. Some have tried white chocolate, others dark. I, personally, prefer milk chocolate over the semi-sweet. Someone suggested cinnamon or butterscotch. Another lady recommended adding pecans. So, feel free to play around with this recipe and make it to suit your taste. It makes a big batch, so you can divide and make several different kinds.
