So seeing how I've been on a baking rampage recently (it might have to do with the fact that Marc and I are cooking our first Thanksgiving dinner together this year!) I thought I'd share some of my recipes. Excuse me while I tie my apron on, sit you at the table, and take out my tin box of recipe clippings, haha. First up is this batch of spiced pumpkin and oatmeal cookies. I swear to God they taste just like pumpkin scones from Starbucks- they're so cozy and perfect with a cup of coffee while you're working away on your blog. I originally got the recipe from Chow, but I made a few tweaks to make it more spiced. Jump down to see!
For the cookies:
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 1/3 cups rolled oats
- 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon all spice
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg, at room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin purée (NOT pie filling!!)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons and 1 teaspoon milk (not nonfat)
- 2 tablespoons maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon nutmeg
- Heat the oven to 350°F while you get the ingredients together
- Whisk the flour, oats, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, all spice and salt together in a medium bowl.
- In a separate bowl, mix the butter and sugars together until fluffy. Then add the egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated.
- Take the bowl with the dry ingredients and add half of the flour mixture to the butter and sugar bowl while mixing. Then add half of the pumpkin and mix. Repeat with the remaining flour mixture and pumpkin.
- Add the cookie dough onto baking sheets and bake for 22 minutes.
For the Glaze:
- Whisk all the ingredients into a medium bowl and whisk until combined. Then take a fork and dip it into the glazed mixture, and drizzle it over the cookies! Let the cookies sit for about 30 minutes until the glaze has set, then enjoy!
I hope you love these treats as much as I do ;)
