Pumpkin Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Try to say that five times fast!

I really wanted a pumpkin treat, so I preheated the oven to 375 degrees and covered the counter with the following ingredients.

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup peanut flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks, 1/2 pound) butter, melted
1 cup granulated [white] sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon dark rum
2 eggs
1 cup (1/2 a 12-ounce package) NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Morsels
2 cups easy pumpkin pie mix
1 cup quick oats

Then, I turned over the Nestle Toll House Mini Morsel bag, and got to work.

ONE: Combine flour, peanut flour, baking power and salt in a small bowl.

TWO: Mix butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and rum in larger mixer bowl.

THREE: Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add easy pumpkin pie mix.

FOUR: Gradually mix in flour mixture. Stir in morsels.

FIVE: Drop by rounded tablespoon onto un-greased baking sheets.

SIX: Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown.

Realize your cookies are too liquid and add 1 cup of quick oats.

SEVEN and a HALF: Continue to drop tablespoon size helpings on to un-greased cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes.

EIGHT: Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to cloth kitchen towels to cool completely.
