Great Pumpkin Cookies

Hey Charlie Brown!  Are you looking for a Great Pumpkin Cookie?  Well, here it is my friends! Moist, chewy and soon to be one of your favorite cookies, I promise!

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.

    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.

      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!
