This weekend my school held their fall festival. This was an opportunity for the children to show off their classrooms, play games and play in the bounce house. We also had the book fair open and were selling items at a bake sale. All the staff members were asked to bake items to sell at the bake sale. So, I got thinking… what am I going to make.
I decided to bake two different cookies. First I baked S’more cookies, and messed up the recipe. It turned out ok, but would have been better if I followed ALL the steps.
The second kind I decided to bake at pumpkin spice oatmeal cookies. I figure, oh everyone is head over heals for pumpkin spice these will sell like hotcakes. Well they didn’t, but I don’t care they still tasted really good (and I am not a huge pumpkin spice person).
Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal cookies. (edited from Food Fanatic)
- 1 cup Butter, Softened
- 3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
- 1 cup Brown Sugar
- 2 Eggs
- 1 tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 teaspoon Cinnamon
- 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 3 cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats
- 2 tablespoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
- Preheat oven to 350°F, line your baking sheets
- Cream together the butter and sugars on medium speed for 3-4 minutes.
- Scrape down the bowl, and mix in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla
- Add the dry ingredients (flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, pumpkin spice and oats). into the wet ingredients, and mix until just combined.
- Scoop out dough with a large cookie scoop and place on the lined baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are golden brown, its okay if the middles look slightly undercooked, they will finish cooking on the pan as they cool.
- Allow to set for 4-5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
These cookies were REALLY tasty. They were not dry in the least. Colby took home some of the extras from the bake sale and they were sticking together. Colby was hesitant to try it at first and then loved them. I think he took home 4 bags from the bake sale. I guess I will have to bake these again. I bet they would be very tasty if you used apple pie spice in lieu of the pumpkin pie spice. I have more pumpkin pie spice now I want to make snickerdoodles with the pumpkin pie spice… yummy!
