Terri's Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

2 c. all purpose flour
1 c oatmeal
2 tsp. baking soda
1 box of pumpkin spice pudding (dry)
1 1/2 stick of butter, softened
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tbsp. honey, maple syrup or agave

Preheat oven to 350. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and pumpkin spice pudding mix- set aside.  Cream together (on medium speed) butter and both sugars until fluffy (about 5 minutes). Then add eggs, one at time, followed by vanilla and honey. Scrape down sides. Then reduce to low speed and add dry ingredients. Combine until just incorporated.

Line baking sheet with parchment. Scoop out cookie dough balls onto sheet. Space the cookies 2 inches apart. Slightly flatten the cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool for 10 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
