I developed this recipe as a way to have a special Fall cookie with some of the best flavors of the season. The best part, none of the flavors overwhelm any of the others, and it creates a great blend.
3 cups pumpkin butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp orange extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups flour
½ tsp salt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
5 cups rolled oats
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350. Spray cookie sheets with non-stick spray.
Cream together butter and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs, vanilla and orange extract.
Add flour, salt, baking powder and pumpkin pie spice. Blend into sugar mixture. Add rolled oats, cranberries and chocolate chips.
Use a small scoop, and drop onto prepared cookies sheet.
Bake 9-11 minutes. Allow to cool completely on baking sheet before transferring to cooling rack.
These make a thicker, chewy cookie. My kids adore them, I hope you do too!
