Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Some things get better with age! I made these cookies the other day and after I ate one I thought, "Oh no, another baking disaster...". They were spongy dry and more like a muffin than a cookie. I decided to put them in a ziploc and take them to work the next day (I didn't want them to go to waste!) Then I ate one while I was a work and they were really good! I guess being in the bag helped them regain moisture and the flavors had time to "marry." I have been warming up these cookies and eating them for breakfast the past few mornings... (they are now more like a scone than a cookie, oh well at least the taste good!)

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 stick butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup quick oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips  
Mix together softened butter with white and brown sugar.
Stir in pumpkin, egg, vanilla and cinnamon.
Slowly mix in flour and baking soda.

Stir oats and chocolate chips into batter.

Drop 1 Tb of batter onto greased cookie sheets.
Bake on 325 for 12 mins.
Cool on cookie sheets.
You can try one now if you would like, but don't be disappointed if they don't taste wonderful. Put them in a ziploc bag and let them sit over night, trust me!
