We were heading to a friend’s house for dinner and I was in charge of bringing a salad and dessert. I decided to make some pumpkin cookies with oatmeal and white chocolate chips. They smelled incredible while they baked and tasted fantastic. These cookies were cakey without being dense, sweet, spicy, and absolutely delicious. They were a big hit with everyone, especially the kids.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat.
Combine the flour, oats, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger together in a bowl. Mix until well combined.
Using a mixer, beat the sugars together with the butter, egg, and vanilla until cream smooth. Add the pumpkin and stir until well combined. Add the oat mixture into the pumpkin mixture until just combined then add 1 cup of the white chocolate chips until well mixed.
Drop spoonfuls of the the dough onto the prepared baking sheet then top each cookie equally with the remaining white chocolate chips. Place into the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 2 minutes before moving the cookies to a wire rack to cool. Serve with ice cold milk if desired. Enjoy.
