Happy November!

1 Comment

With the trees ablaze and the air a fresh breath, I ask you to open your windows, crank up your oven, and throw these cookies together. Your window for autumn baking is short, it’s only a matter of days before all of Macy’s parades through the streets and replaces pumpkin flavors with peppermint, so you’d better act fast.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

Adapted from My Baking Addiction

ingredients:

2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats

1 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp salt

2 sticks butter, softened

1 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

1 egg

*optional- 1-2 cups chocolate chips or nuts

Preheat to 350

Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt in a bowl.

Beat together butter and sugars until light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes.

Add eggs and pumpkin to butter mixture and beat until combined.

Slowly stir in flour mixture (DON’T OVERMIX!)

Place tablespoonfuls of dough on parchment paper lined cookie sheets, bake for 14-20 minutes until lightly brown on edges. (I actually enjoyed the batch that I severely burned more than the “perfectly” baked ones). Let cookies cool completely on baking sheet before removing.

Enjoy with a glass of cider while pretending you’re amongst the rolling hills of the countryside.

  1. Great balancing act with these cookies. They turned out wonderfully and I love your pumpkin decoration (candle?) in the background.
