How to make Pumpkin No Bake Cookies
After organizing all the ingredients needed grab a medium saucepan and over a medium heat melt butter, sugar, vanilla extract, milk and real pumpkin puree together. As the mixture heats make sure to stir and scrape the bottom of the pan lifting up the ingredients.
Bring mixture to a full rolling boil and boil for about 2 minutes. This is what helps to bind the ingredients all together as it cools as is a soft ball stage.
In a large mixing bowl combine quick oats with old fashioned oats along with pumpkin spice. The spice ads pumpkin flavor to this sweet treat recipe.
Add melted butter pumpkin mixture to the oats mixture in a large bowl and stir to combine. Making easy no bake pumpkin cookies is just this easy. Use a lined baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and using a medium cookie scoop or spoons drop cookie dough onto cookie sheet.
If you wish you can roll a scoop of mixture and press to form a flat circle and place on parchment lined baking sheet to cool.
No Bake Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies are just a fun cookie around the holidays. The recipe reminds me a little of traditional regular No Bakes Cookies made with cocoa powder and creamy Peanut Butter but I do enjoy the fall flavors of this recipe.
Allow cookies to cool before removing from pan. This recipe will make 12-15 cookies depending on size which is a fun small batch size cookie recipe. The recipe is easily doubled for larger batches.
Store cookies in an airtight container or bag for up to a week and kept at room temperature. I do find that cookies are best if enjoyed with 2-3 days.
No bake cookies do not freeze well and tend to crumble. They are easy enough to make and enjoy fresh.
Easy Pumpkin Cookies
These no-bake Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies are so fun for the fall season or for a holiday event. It's a great option to add to a dessert tray making sure you have something for everyone. I think they are the perfect treat and I truly love the texture of the cookies too.
The oatmeal gives a chewy texture that I love about rolled oats in cookies. And don't forget those mix-ins. They are optional but so good too.
Mix-ins. There are many great addition. When adding mix-ins to the warm cookie dough mixture use my tip of freezing chocolate or candies to help prevent melting when mixing into cookie dough. Our favorite mix-ins are Chocolate chips, Nuts, Coconut and M&M's
Cookie size. Small cookie shapes are ideal for no bake cookies. They spread less and cool quicker. Use a cookie scoop to drop cookie dough on cookie sheets
Baking Sheets. Line baking sheet with parchment paper, wax paper or use a silicone mat. It helps to remove cooled cookies easier and clean up is so simple too.
School Treats. No Bake cookies make great school treats in the kids lunches. And don't forget to send a few for the teacher too. She will love them.
