This is a sweet simple little cookie that is perfect for the fall munchies.
Just blend oatmeal, raisins (optional), butterscotch morsels, pecans and pumpkin pureé with flour, sugar, pumpkin pie spice, butter and a few pantry staples to make a warm and wonderful cookie you will want to have around all fall.
Chilling the cookie dough is key to this recipe. Letting the dough rest overnight improves it even more. Try adding dark chocolate chips for an over the top cookie.
It’s Fall y’all !
