Pumpkin Oatmeal Spice Cookies

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, pumpkin spice, baking soda and salt.
  2. In another bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar and white sugar together until fully mixed.
  3. Add the egg yolk and vanilla extract until combined.
  4. Blot and dry the canned pumpkin puree to remove as much moisture as possible.
  5. Then, beat the pumpkin into the butter mixture with a mixer.
  6. Switching to low speed, mix the dry ingredients into the pumpkin batter.
  7. Mix in the oats.
  8. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
  9. When ready, preheat the oven to 350F degrees and line cookie sheets with parchment paper for easy clean up.
  10. Using a large spoon and a pumpkin-shaped cookie cutter, scoop the dough into balls and press into the mold until flat. Each cookie should be roughly 2 inches apart on the lined cookie sheets.
  11. Bake the cookies 1 sheet at a time on the middle rack of the preheated oven for about 8-10 minutes.
  12. Cool on the cookie tray for at least 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
  13. Use white or orange store-bought icing to outline and decorate the cooled, finished treats!
