Pumpkin Cookies

4 cups flour
2 cups oats (quick or old fashioned)
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 c butter
or margarine, softened
2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 can (16 oz) pumpkin
1 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350. Combine first 5 ingredients, set aside. Cream butter and sugars together, beat until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix well. Alternate additions of dry ingredients and pumpkin, mixing well after each addition. Stir in choc. chips. For each cookie, drop by 1/4 cup onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake 10-12 minutes, until firm and lightly browned. Cool completely. Decorate with icing (I like cream cheese frosting!) and assorted candies. Makes approx. 3 dozen large cookies (great for visiting teaching or to "boo" friends!)
