  • Beat white sugar, shortening, and brown sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Stir pumpkin and eggs into creamed butter mixture; add flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and cloves and mix until dough is just combined. Fold oats into dough.

  • Drop dough by spoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies are crisp, about 12 minutes.

Cook's Note:

The dough may seem stiff at first, but becomes softer as it sits.

I liked these cookies but think they needed a bit more spice. I did substitute unbleached all-purpose flour for the whole wheat flour just because I didn t have any. I added a half cup of pure chocolate chips but probably should have added more. The recipe said that it made 24 cookies but they would have been huge. I made 60 2-bite cookies as I was making them to be packaged for a bake sale. I think with a little tweaking to suit my tastes these could become my go to pumpkin cookie! Read More
