Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies.
1 cup Flour.
1/2 cup oatmeal.
1/2 tsp baking soda.
1/2 tsp cinnamon.
little less than 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce.
1/2 cup brown sugar.
1/2 tsp vanilla extract.
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/2 cup chocolate chips.
Mix together flour, oatmeal, soda, and cinnamon. Set aside. In another bowl, blend brown sugar and apple sauce. Add egg; blend well. Add vanilla and pumpkin puree; mix until blended, then add flour mixture and chocolate chips.
Drop by teaspoonful on cookie sheets; bake at 350 F for 10 to 12 minutes.
The batter was very wet, so i only put 5 cookies on a sheet expecting them to spread significantly. They pretty much stayed the same size and shape. The recipe states to cook them 8 to 10 minutes; i kept them in for 12 and still think they ought to have been in a couple minutes longer. They are set, but the bottoms did not brown well. The recipe made 20 cookies, and they are delicious!
I might try it again with raisins instead of chips, and nutmeg instead of cinnamon. I still have lots of pumpkin left, and only one other recipe i want to try; pumpkin in a can is actually pretty cheap around here all year long, to, so i have the chance to make these again and again!
