Great Pumpkin Cookies
Great Pumpkin Cookies
Many years ago I found this recipe on the back of a can of Libby’s solid pumpkin, not the pie mix. It has become one of our very favorite cookies, chewy not cakey. Sometimes I glaze the tops, or if you like white, milk, or dark chocolate chips, add those. Hands down at our house we all vote for butterscotch chips, raisins and walnuts or pecans.
Begin by preheating your oven to 350° F. I like to use silpat baking mats on my Bakers Half Sheets.
Now combine the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large mixing bowl, have I said how much I love my Bosch Mixer? Mix until light and fluffy and then add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla extract; mix well. Add flour mixture; mix well. Stir in nuts, raisins and butterscotch chips. Drop ¼ cup dough onto prepared baking sheet; spread into 3-inch circle or oval. Repeat with remaining dough.
Bake cookies for 14 to 16 minutes or until cookies are firm and lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 20 extra-large cookies, or about 30 regular, using a cookie scoop. If you’re making 30 instead of 20, be sure to adjust your baking time.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⅓ cups quick or old-fashioned oats
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup pumpkin
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ¾ cup chopped walnuts
- ¾ cup raisins
- 1-1/2 cups butterscotch chips
- PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
- COMBINE flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla extract; mix well. Add flour mixture; mix well. Stir in nuts and raisins. Drop ¼ cup dough onto prepared baking sheet; spread into 3-inch circle or oval. Repeat with remaining dough.
- BAKE for 14 to 16 minutes or until cookies are firm and lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 20 extra-large cookies.

Nuts, butterscotch chips, and raisins???? They HAVE to be delicious! La
Just last night we were at a meeting for church and hubby was snacking on pumpkin cookies. He raved about it and here you are with the recipe! Thank you, I just saved and printed it. I’ve got cans of pumpkin in my pantry calling out to me….

These look wonderful! Why is it I read these posts with wonderful foods when I am starving????
Oh yum! I never met a cookie I didn’t like, and I aim to make these…pronto!
Those look amazing! I have pumpkin pulp to use up, so I might have to try this out A.S.A.P!
These look wonderful and adaptable with the add-ins! Thanks for sharing!
They look delicious! I’m a pumpkin freak. I think I’ve told you that before. I think it would be delicious with that butterscotch.
And how about if you made them chocolate pumpkin cookies and used chocolate chips in a batch or two? Hmm? I have a chocolate pumpkin bread recipe that’s delish so I’m thinking it would work.
Yum…these sound so good, can’t wait to try them. Thanks for sharing, fondly, Roberta

Yummy! I love oatmeal scotchies, and this reminds me of them, but I love pumpkin too, so this is a winner!
My mom was just telling me she saw a pumpkin cookie recipe in blogland she wanted to try. This is the recipe and I want to try this too. It looks fabulous and I will try it next week when my daughter comes home from college.

HI! These look so good. I love all things pumpkin. Couldn’t believe it the other night when I heard Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown was 50 years old? WOW!
Ha-Ha, thanks Julie. I’m super excited to see their new movie coming out this month. Maybe we’ll need to come up with a new cookie in the cast’s honor!
