We’re coming down the home stretch aren’t we, Christmas is going to be here before we know it!
Every year we go hunting for something to bake that’s a little different than what we baked last year for our cookie trays. Not easy is it? I happened a cross this recipe this morning and decided to try it. The recipe says you can use either pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice. I really wished I had apple pie spice in the house but pumpkin it was! I have to admit the one teaspoon turned out to be a heaping teaspoon, kinda love my pumpkin pie spice too. The recipe said to measure out tablespoons of the dough, well that didn’t look big enough for me so I used my coffee scooper, then patted them down a little bit before baking The other change I made was to use quick oats, again all I had in the house, but they were good , very good! I baked these for 11 minutes then let them rest on the cookie sheet for a couple more. A nice buttery oatmeal cookie with a pumpkin pie or apple pie taste, crunchy and slightly chewy all in one. Lovin it!!

Oatmeal Pumpkin Pie Spice Cookies
- 2 sticks unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons corn syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
- 2 cups quick oats
- 1 heaping teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice
Heat oven to 375° F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
With an electric mixer on medium-high, beat the butter, brown and granulated sugars, corn syrup, and vanilla for 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until combined.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the oatmeal, flour, salt, pumpkin or apple pie spice and baking soda. Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture to the egg mixture.
Form the dough into tablespoon-size mounds. Place on the prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake until lightly browned at the edges, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer the cookies to wire racks. Cool completely.
