Welcome to Cloches & Lavender where I share recipes, crafts and home décor.

Today I’m sharing how to make pumpkin oatmeal cookies. This is an easy to follow recipe. I actually came up with this recipe this weekend!

After realizing I had a package of Betty Crocker Oatmeal cookie mix in the house, I came up with this simple twist. I keep these bags of cookie mix in the house so I can whip up a batch of cookies faster. They have no preservatives in them so once in a while I take a short cut.

Ingredients Needed:

  • 1 bag Betty Crocker Oatmeal cookie mix
  • 1/4 cup Pure pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 1 dash ground nutmeg
  • egg
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 1/4 cup Chips of your choice. My choice is Ghirardelli white chocolate and coffee chips combined
  • mixing bowl and spoon
  • cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

Before I share the process of making these cookies I want to share a few tips I have learned about baking:

  • First, when adding dry ingredients to a mixing bowl, using a good wire whisk, I ALWAYS whisk them together to combine and get a bit of air in them
  • Baking is a science, so make sure your measurements are exact.
  • When I make any drop cookies, I put the dough in the refrigerator for 5 – 7 minutes. This ALWAYS gives me a better cookie
  • Premeasuring ingredients when baking and having them in smaller glass bowls makes the process easier and go more smoothly. I am not a professional baker but I have been baking for most of my adult life and these are tips I have learned over the years.

Making Pumpkin Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Preheat the oven at 350

In a medium size mixing bowl add the package of Betty Crocker Oatmeal cookie mix. Next measure a dash of ground nutmeg. Whisk the dry ingredients together.

Now add your room temperature egg and softened stick of butter, pumpkin and begin to mix. Before the ingredients are fully combined add the chips.

Put the bowl in the refrigerator for 5-7 minutes.

Using a cookie scoop, scoop out the pumpkin oatmeal chip dough. Make sure the measurement is flat in the cookie scoop. Place them on the cookie sheet 2″ apart and bake for 12 minutes. Next, let them cool on the cookie sheet for 1 minute. Now, remove the cookies and continue to cool on a cooling rack.

I hope you enjoyed reading this recipe for pumpkin oatmeal chip cookies and will give them a try. These are also light and will work great on your holiday dessert table.
