  • Total Time 40 min
  • Makes: 36 cookies

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Compliments Organic Quick Oats 175 mL
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour 175 mL
  • 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice 15 mL
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda 2 mL
  • 1/2 tsp salt 2 mL
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature 125 mL
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar 150 mL
  • 1/3 cup sugar 75 mL
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 5 mL
  • 1/2 cup Compliments Pure Pumpkin 125 mL
  • 1/2 cup Compliments Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips & Chunks 125 mL
  • 1/2 cup walnut pieces 125 mL

Directions

  • Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180ºC (350ºF). Line 2 or 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. In food processor, grind oats to flour-like consistency. Add all-purpose flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt. Pulse to blend; set aside.

  • Step 2

    In bowl, with electric mixer, beat together butter and both kinds of sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 min. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla, then beat in pumpkin puree. Use a spatula to stir in flour mixture until just incorporated. Fold in chocolate and nuts.

  • Step 3

    Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls, about 2-in. (5-cm.) apart, onto lined baking sheets. Bake, in batches, 10 to 12 min., until tops are just set and bottoms are lightly golden. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.

Tip

For a frozen treat, sandwich vanilla ice cream between two cookies and freeze until firm.
