Spiced Pumpkin & Oatmeal No Bake Cookies
(Makes approx. 1.5 dozen cookies)
One of my favorite cookies to make is a no bake cookie, and I think one of my hubby’s favorite to eat also. I say that because when I make them they disappear as fast as I am making them.
1 c. pumpkin puree
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. clove
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. granulated sugar
1/2 c. caramel
4 TB. butter
1/2 c. milk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. sea salt (plus extra to sprinkle on tops of cookies)
3 c. oats
1. Combine pumpkin puree and spices in saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a slow boil then reduce to low.
2. Add sugars, caramel, butter and milk and cook until mixture comes to a boil, bring to low heat. Stir until
smooth, making sure sugar is fully dissolved. Add vanilla extract and sea salt, mix until combined.
3. Stir in oats, one cup at a time until completely coated in pumpkin mixture.
4. Place tablespoon-sized balls onto parchment paper and sprinkle with sea salt. Let come to room
temperature for about an hour before serving or place in refrigerator or freezer until cool.
