Pumpkin Cookies

I haven't made anything with pumpkin yet this fall season. Seems like a crime against nature, I know. I came across a bunch of recipes for pumpkin. Cookies, breads, pies, ravioli (which I definitely need to try out soon). Below is a combo of a bunch of the cookie recipes. (PS Work friends, you're getting a lot of cookies tomorrow.)

2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Then in a medium bowl, cream both sugars and butter together. Add the pumpkin, egg, and vanilla extract to the sugar mixture. With a spatula, combine the sugar and flour mixtures together. Drop one teaspoon of the batter onto greased cookie sheets. They do not spread much so leave about one inch between each cookie. Cook at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes until lightly browned.


  1. You should try it with real sugar pumpkins! I did my pumpkin pie last year with real pumpkins and it was SOOOOOOOO much better. I love your blog lady! Oh and I just saw that you have a recipe for Gnocchi! I'm gonna have to try it! I buy Gnocchi to have all the time. Craig loves it!

  2. I need to try making my own pumpkin puree! I've never done it. My experience pretty much ends at roasting the seeds (yummy by the way). My dad gave me another gnocchi recipe that also includes egg if you're interested...
