As you may be able to tell, I've been on a bit of a pumpkin kick lately.

I bought about 8 cans from Trader Joe's and I've been trying to figure out things to make with them so I can have a reason to go back and buy more. Does that sound crazy? Maybe a little bit pumpkin-crazy. But I'm okay with that.

What better way to use up ingredients than by making cookies?  I'm a big fan of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, so I thought I would just add some pumpkin to them.

It makes it feel slightly healthier with the oatmeal, which is maybe why I've felt the need to eat a dozen or so before I could even sit down to write about it. Yum.

I had to bring them to work just so I wouldn't eat all 4 dozen by myself. They didn't last long at work, either. I think I increased my popularity among my coworkers for sure!

Any pumpkin dough will be pretty sticky, so I recommend using a cookie dough scoop for these.

With each batch, I added a bit of time to the cooking timer, and I think the best was about 20-22 minutes. Though you may want to experiment with longer times if you prefer them a little crispy (these were pretty soft, which is the way I like them).
