Pumpkin Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I've my fair share of pumpkin cookies over the past few years.  There aren't too many pumpkin recipes that I pass on.  And when I come across one where I have all the ingredients, I usually make it immediately.  That is what happened with this recipe.  I pinned it.  Checked my pantry.  Then started baking.  I was really excited about these cookies because I've never made a pumpkin oatmeal cookie before.  And I love oatmeal cookies.  The one thing I was missing from the original recipe (link below) was dark (or milk or semi sweet) chocolate chips.  To make up for what was missing, I just added more while chocolate chips.  I actually enjoyed the pumpkin and white chocolate combination and think the dark chocolate would have overpowered that.  When I make them again, I think I'll try the chocolate but only do dark chocolate instead of using white and dark together.
  These cookies were a hit with everyone who tried them.  Hubs took them to work and they flew out the door.  My parents came over a few days later and they enjoyed what was left.  If you're a pumpkin fanatic like myself, you'll enjoy these cookies.

1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2  cups all purpose flour
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips 
2 cups rolled oats (oatmeal) *I used quick cooking
1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice
1 TB vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup unsalted butter
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 egg

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Set aside.
2. Next beat butter, sugar and brown sugar until well creamed together.
3. Now add in pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Beat until combine well.
4. Gradually add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until incorporated.

5. Next, stir in your oats. Mix well.
6. Stir in both the white and dark chocolate chips.
7. Drop cookie dough by the rounded tablespoon on to the prepared baking. sheet.
8. Bake cookies for 14-15 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned. DO NOT OVER COOK. They will seem a little soft, but will firm up as they cool. You want to keep the nice, soft texture!
