  • 2 cups flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp ginger
  • ½ tsp cloves
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats


  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. Lay out several paper towels and place pumpkin puree on top. Place several paper towels over puree and gently press down to soak up excess moisture. Repeat until puree measures about ¼ cup. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and spices and set aside.
  4. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and both sugars on medium speed for 2-3 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  5. Gently add pumpkin puree with the mixer still on medium speed.
  6. With the mixer on low, slowly add in the flour mixture. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure it is fully incorporated.
  7. Add in the oats and mix on low just until combined.
  8. Using a 2 tbsp scoop, form cookies into balls and place them a few inches apart on a parchment covered cookie sheet.
  9. Bake for 14-15 minutes until cookies are firm around the edges.
  10. Let cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack. Enjoy!


This recipe makes about 2 dozen cookies using a 2 tbsp sized scoop.
