Pumpkin-Spice Gooey Cookies!

Pumpkin Pie Cookie

“Make gooey cookies!” my kids told me as I was whipping up a yummy recipe on a Sunday afternoon.

After putting the cookies (2 pans) into my convection oven (I love it!), I made sure not to overcook them.

Do you have Pumpkin Pie Spice lying around in your kitchen cupboards? If yes, then this is the perfect recipe for you!

Pumpkin Pie Spice

Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/3 cups flour
2 tsp. PUMPKIN PIE SPICE
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1 cup white chocolate chips

You know the drill – mix the first 5 ingredients. Then add the rest and mix some more.

Drop by scoops or spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes.

The secret to gooey? Just don’t over-bake!

What I love about making cookies in my kitchen is that it brings everyone together. To snitch on the dough, to wait for the warm cookies to come out of the oven, to grab some milk in a cup, to talk and to hear the “Mmm’s” taking place. That just makes a mom happy, don’t you agree?

I’d love to hear what your favorite fall-time cookie is?

(Pumpkin Pie Spice consists of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice.)

  1. I usually don’t like white chocolate. But I made these cookies today and oh my goodness! They are really addictive! Thanks so much!

  2. Made these this morning and they are delightful. Can’t wait to share them with my kids when they get home from school. My son asked me at the beginning of the school year to try to make “special” snacks that we can sit down and eat together as we share thoughts about the school day. He is 11 and I know my time with him and his desire to do that is so fleeting so I try to oblige. Thanks for the great recipe.

  3. I made your cookies today! Blogged about them, too. :-) Thank you for sharing! My grandchildren loved them!

  4. My gosh, woman! I just about electrocuted myself drooling on my laptop. SHEESH. Note to self: when visiting with Sandy, wear bib!

  5. White chocolate is my favorite! Those look amazing :)

  6. I love gooey cookies. I think for fall I like butterhorns. I’m going to need to find that recipe somewhere since I haven’t made them in years…

  7. Pumpkin spice cookies with orange glaze! Without a DOUBT! They remind me of the German Lebkuchen! Have a great day! :)

  8. These cookies look divine! Thanks for the recipe.

    So your loving your convection oven. We’ve got convection in our motorhome and at home and I still don’t like cooking with it. I get nervous when having company because I never know if something is going to turn out or not. Guess I just need to practice more with it.

  9. We used to have a convection oven. Last year it broke and couldn’t be fixed. We couldn’t afford to replace it with another convection, so we went back to a normal oven. A sad day indeed. I miss my convection oven so much. Wait until Thanksgiving! Talk about WONDERFUL!!! You’ll love it!

  10. They look delish!!! Cranberries and white choc are so good together! I bet they disappeared quickly in your house.

  11. gooey is an understatement! what a terrific batch o’ cookies, sandy. :)

  12. Gingersnaps. Nothing reminds me of fall more than smelling all those wonderful spices with a hint of robust molasses. Yyuuuum!

  13. Hmmm cookies, this post has made me so hungry. I don’t make cookies often enough! These look so good but what is pumpkin pie spice? What are the ingredients of that spice mix – cinanamon, nutmeg or something like that? I don’t think I can get that here, should still be yummy without it though.

    I really want to try out the unusual recipe Joy the Baker has for peanut butter bacon cookies – sounds very american – I’m already a convert in terms of pancakes, bacon and maple syrup – think this may be similar?

    • Hi Jade, I added the ingredients to the spice on the post, but you are right! Cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice! And peanut butter bacon sounds very interesting – let me know how it is!

  14. I make peanut butter – oatmeal cookies {with white chocolate chips} that are gooey, and everyone loves them.

    I’ve never thought of pumpkin spice; I’ll have to give that a try!
