White Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

I think I might have a new favorite cookie! These pumpkin oatmeal cookies are loaded with white chocolate and they are basically irresistible. Pumpkin and white chocolate pair perfectly together and make quite the combination. They are perfectly spiced, too!
And if for some reason you're not a fan of white chocolate, you can easily substitute semi-sweet chocolate chips in the recipe for another delicious version. Now get baking!

1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats

3. In another mixing bowl, whisk melted butter with both sugars. Whisk for 15 seconds to combine. Add vanilla and egg yolk and whisk until the egg is incorporated. Add pumpkin and whisk until combined.

5. Cover the dough bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat liner.
7. Scoop dough using a cookie scoop and place onto prepared baking sheet. Bake cookies for 9-11 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on sheet for 5 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack.
