pumpkin oatmeal cookies

Pearson and I went to a Fisher Price House Party at a friends house the other day and the host served these delicious cookies.  I asked her for the recipe, and she said he had found it on Pinterest.  As soon as I got home, I found it on one of her boards, went to the grocery store to pick up the white chocolate chips (which happened to be the only ingredient I didn't have on hand), and made them that afternoon.  I am no food photographer, so my pictures don't even do these cookies justice.  They are so soft and delicious!!  You must go make these today!!
