It's Pumpkin Season

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

Browsing the internet looking for something to bake for the football team, I came across this recipe. I am all about pumpkin, just love it. And this recipe delivered. Of course I added more chocolate chips, homemade vanilla. This is perfect for the season.
