Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Spiced Glaze

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies with Spiced Glaze

Our dear friends have hosted many Muggle Quidditch games on their property.  They are moving soon 🙁 , so last night was the last game.  I usually help run the “Three Broomsticks” where we have all kind of treats from butterbeer, licorice wands, chocolate turtles, every flavor beans, popcorn, etc.  I decided to make pumpkin cookies to add to the offerings.  I love the flavor of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, but not the texture.  They are usually to cakey for me.  So I decided to add oatmeal to the mix and see what happened.  The results are wonderful!  I made 9 dozen cookies they are all gone now.  The teenagers LOVED them!  I had originally thought to make a chocolate glaze, but decided to go with a spiced glaze.  These are a new family favorite!
