  • Take spoonfuls of the mixture (I use a slightly heaping tablespoon measure) and press together with your hands just slightly to form into a somewhat flat ball.
    Set on the prepared baking sheet and allow to cool.

  • Before you get started making the pumpkin cookies, we suggest getting all of your ingredients ready and measuring them out.  This will make the process go much smoother!
  • Do not over-boil the pumpkin puree mix! You want the oat cookie mixture to come together quickly.
