Pumpkin Oatmeal Scotchies

 Found these over at Mommy's Kitchen and thought I'd give them a try to use up some of the pumpkin I have.  I like them but I think next time I won't use as many butterscotch chips.  It's a little overpowering.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Scotchies

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 large eggs
3/4 to 1 cup canned or fresh pumpkin puree
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups quick or old fashioned oats
1 2/3 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in small bowl.  Beat butter, sugars, eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla in large mixer bowl.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Stir in oats and morsels.  Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.  Bake for 7 to 8 minutes for chewy cookies, 9 to 10 minutes for crisp cookies.  Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Pan Cookie Variation:
Grease 15x10 inch jelly roll pan.  Prepare dough as above.  Spread into prepared pan.  Bake for 18 to 22 minutes or until lightly brown.  Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
