Tips & Tricks

  • Be sure to use pumpkin puree in this recipe and not pumpkin pie filling.
  • If your canned pumpkin puree seems watery, pour it into a colander and drain off some of the liquid. You could also pour it onto paper towels and blot it.
  • Do not use quick cooking oats in this recipe. Whole old fashioned oats will yield the best texture cookies.
  • If you like nuts in your cookies, you can add 1/2 cup chopped pecans into the cookie dough.

How to store Pumpkin Cookies

  • Store the cookies in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Lay them in a single layer or put a piece of parchment paper between them so the glaze doesn’t stick them together.
  • Keep in the refrigerator up to one week.
  • When eating leftover cookies, warm them cookies up in the microwave a few seconds. They are especially delicious when warm!
