Pumpkin Cookie Ingredients

- pumpkin puree ( I use canned pumpkin)

How to Make Oatmeal Pumpkin Cookies
I start with my dry ingredients. In a bowl I sift in the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
If you don’t have a sifter you can whisk the dry ingredients together to make sure there are no lumps.
In a mixer bowl, add your pumpkin puree, brown sugar, and sugar. Cream together at a medium speed for 3-4 minutes until smooth.
Add the vanilla and eggs and mix again until they are combined into the batter.
Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the mixer and mix on low until combined.
Then add your oats to the mixture. Mix until just combined.
Scoop the cookie dough with a cookie scoop or use a teaspoon and scoop a heaping teaspoon onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Space them a few inches apart. These chewy cookies do not spread much.
Bake in your preheated oven and then let them sit on the cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to finish cooling.
Cinnamon Icing Drizzle
After the cookies have cooled completely you can drizzle with the cinnamon icing. You only need 3 ingredients for the icing: powdered sugar, ground cinnamon, and milk. Mix together and then I use a fork to drizzle the icing on top of the cooled cookies.
If you have leftovers, you can place them in an airtight container on the counter or in the refrigerator for up to 7 days. These pumpkin cookies have a great chewy texture and make a great autumn cookie.
