Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups (186g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 ½ cups (300g) packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 ¼ cups (260g) quick cooking oats

Instructions

  • Note: this dough needs to be chilled. Plan ahead!
  • In a medium bowl, whisk pumpkin spice, salt, baking soda, and flour. Set aside.
  • Cream butter and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. (You can also use a large bowl and a hand mixer.) Cream until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Mix in eggs, and vanilla and beat until smooth.
  • Gradually mix in dry ingredients until smooth, being careful not to over mix. Add oats and mix until all combined.
  • Scoop 2 tablespoon sized balls of dough and place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silpat baking mat and place the cookie dough balls 2” apart.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the bottom is slightly golden. Cool on cookie sheets for 10 minutes, then remove to a rack to cool completely.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 4 days. They can also be frozen in an airtight container or ziploc bag for up to 2 months.

Notes

  • Make your own quick cook oats if you don’t have old fashioned by pulsing them in a blender or food processor.
  • Add 1 ½ cups chopped nuts, white chocolate chips or chocolate chips (or a combination of any of the three) in step 4 after adding the oats.
