One of our absolute favorites, pumpkin chocolate chip cookies I doubled this last time, it didn't last a full 24 hours before being totally devoured. I had many gluteny friends ask for the recipe, so that part is added too. Use either the gluten free flours (in red), or the gluten flour (in blue), not both!

Ingredients
1 cup pumpkin (canned or cooked)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup oil
1 egg
1 cup chocolate chips
GLUTEN FREE:
1.5 cups rice flour, brown or white
1/2 cup potato starch\
1 tsp xanthan gum

GLUTEN:
2 cups light flour

2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda dissolved in 1 tsp milk


Mix oil, sugar, pumpkin, and egg, blend til smooth and set aside. Mix together either the GF flours or regular flour with baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Add the dry to the wet, add the baking soda with milk, and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips.

Make medium sized cookies on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.

Easy Overnight Macaroons

4 cups of oatmeal
2 cups of brown sugar
1 cup of oil,

Mix together well and let them sit all night. 

The next day mix in

2 beaten eggs
1/2 tsp of salt
1 tsp of almond extract

Drop from a teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet and bake for about 15 min at about 325-350 (whatever works best for your oven)

These are sooo good and taste like macaroons.  Or course, if you don't like macaroons, you probably won't like these.

Those macaroons sound good! I wonder if you could mix in shredded coconut. I am up to my eyeballs in spare shredded coconut I got to make my mom's coconut birthday cake. I bought too much.

Go for it! It sounds great! I don't know whether you'd want to add them right before baking or the night before. I doubt it would make a difference. Let me know how it turns out. Wish you lived nearby, I'd like to try them.

I'd love to let you try them! I think mixing in the coconut the night before would be best because it would soften a little. I love cooking experiements! I think I am a closet chemist. ha ha

Edited to ask: how many does it make?

So, do you live in the Los Angeles area?

It makes a lot. It's 4 cups of oatmeal. It would depend on how big you make the cookies. I believe I made 3 big trays of them and we all munched as much as we wanted at New Years. We had 2 guests, so there were 6 of us. We had some left over too.

Okay, so since I am a single mama with a 2 yo, I will maybe make 1/4 the recipe!

And I live in Appalachia, so nope, nowhere near you!

Sounds like a plan. Unless you want to take cookies to church or something.

I am going to try these tonight, and resist the urge to add chocolate chips in the morning.
