I was in the mood for something sweet with pumpkin and butterscotch and I came up with these cookies. My husband and kids love them! These cookies are extra moist and following the recipe should give it a more cakey than crisp texture. If you are looking for a crispy oatmeal cookie, this is not it!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • Beat shortening, brown sugar, pumpkin puree, and white sugar together in a bowl until creamy; add eggs and vanilla extract and beat until smooth.

  • Whisk flour, baking soda, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Gradually stir flour mixture into pumpkin mixture until dough is well-mixed; slowly stir in oats. Stir butterscotch chips into dough until evenly distributed. Drop dough by the spoonful 2 inches apart onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until light golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use more or less of the pumpkin puree or oatmeal depending on the consistency you desire. You can also add 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg with the cinnamon for extra spice.
