I can’t think of a more marketed fall flavor than pumpkin spice! That being the case I couldn’t possibly go through the Fall Cookie Series without including a pumpkin spice cookie of some sort. So, after a little research, and a few trials I came up with a pumpkin spice no bake cookie that is a lot like eating pumpkin pie in cookie form, it’s seriously so yummy.
No Bake Cookies also known as Preacher cookies have been made for many years, They are fast, easy, and don’t require the use of an oven. They often use simple ingredients that anyone may have on hand, and named Preacher cookies because a housewife who saw the preacher coming on horseback round the mountains could have a batch whipped up and cooling before he reached her doorstep. A cookie meant for ultimate levels of hospitality. I love it!
Here is what you need for next level Fall Cookie baking! The Pumpkin Spice No Bake Cookie!
1/2 c. butter
2 c. Sugar
1/2 c. half and half
1/4 c canned pumpkin pie filling
2 Tbsp. Pumpkin pie Spice
1/8 tsp or pinch of salt
1/4 c prepared vanilla or butterscotch pudding (make it a little on the thick side)
1 tsp. vanilla
3-4c. quick oats
On medium-high heat cook butter, sugar, half and half, and pumpkin pie filling allow to boil for 1-2 minutes remove from heat and add remaining ingredients. Drop by the spoonful on a cookie sheet lined with parchment and allow to cool! You could also try pressing the mixture into a pan allow to cool and cut into bars. That’s it!
