Cookie Carnival: Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

These didn't photgraph well but they sure do taste great! I love pumpkin with craisins and white chocolate (see here for an example) so I knew I would love these cookies! I had actually had them bookmarked when I got the email from Tami that these were chosen for the Cookie Carnival. I was excited to have that push to make them and I am glad I did!

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
Recipe from My Baking Addiction

2 cups all purpose flour
1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter; softened
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup pure pumpkin puree
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup dried cherries; roughly chopped

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line your baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
2. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy.
3. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract; mix well. Add flour mixture; combine until all ingredients are incorporated. Fold in white chocolate chips and dried cherries.
4. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets.
5. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

I had actually already made these when Tami sent out the email. I agree, they are hard to photograph, but they may be the best pumpkin cookies that I've had. Your pictures make me want to make them again!
