Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 2 baking sheets.

  • Stir the flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, ginger, and salt in a bowl.

  • Beat the butter and brown sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Add 1 egg and allow it to blend into the mixture before adding the other along with the vanilla. Add the pumpkin and apple butter; continue beating. Mix in the flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the walnuts, mixing just enough to evenly combine. Drop spoonfuls of the dough 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, about 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

Yummy, moist and healthy! I didn't have apple butter so per another user's suggestion, I used applesauce instead. These turned out great! The spices are just the right amount. And only 1 point if you're a WW person :) Read More

i love pumpkin! this was average expected more. if you think of it as little drops of cake instead of a cookie you may enjoy it better. i looked up a 5 star cream cheese frosting to add some flavor and it was better. think i'll rename these "iced pumpkin puffs"! probably will try another recipe though....just being honest!

These were pretty good. I made half of the batch with nuts, the other without. I personally liked them better without the nuts, but that's just because I'm not a big fan of walnuts. I really liked the fluffy texture. These are lightly, not overly spiced. For some reason every time I make pumpkin cookies I have an allergic skin reaction so I have to wear latex gloves :-P Edit: Beware! These cookies get very sticky on the surface after a while. It doesn't affect the taste, but it is kind of weird. Read More

TASTEY!! It's the end of August and I pulled out a pkg of pumpkin puree (AR's Pumpkin Puree) I had in the freezer... and then goodness happened:) As I was adding the spices I got an excited flutter in my stomach reminding me of Fall and all things autumn. Thanks for an excellent recipe. I changed a couple things out of necessity(didn't have on hand or allergy) but I'm sure it didn't change the main objective or flavor/texture, it came out as described. Changes: whole wheat instead of all purpose flour, allspice instead of pumpkin pie spice, applesauce instead of apple butter and chocolate chips instead of walnuts(allergy). Very good recipe!!!

I thought they were pretty good but they were kind of mushy on the inside. I would add a minute to the bake time but besides that they were fine. Read More

I LOVE these! I thought they might be a little heavy on the spices but the balance was perfect and I love the slightly different texture the oats add. These will be in my favorite cookie file for sure! I didn't add the nuts no one here likes nuts but the light muffin like texture is perfect! Read More

Super good! I drizzled cream cheese icing on top. just a small amount to not add to much more sugar just made them perfect. Read More
