Pumpkin No Bake Cookies

I made these because I was craving a pumpkin dessert but didn’t want to make the whole hog. These were pretty painless to make and I love them. M and his friend weren’t as big of fans as they aren’t crunchy cookies.

Makes 36-42 cookies

You’ll Need:
1 cup canned pumpkin puree (not the canned pumpkin pie filling, the plain stuff 🙂
2 tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cocoa
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp sea salt, plus more for topping cookies
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup powered sugar
1/2 stick butter (4 tbsp)
1/2 cup skim milk
3 cups oats

You’ll:
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over low to medium heat. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the oats and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Slowly add the oats until they are completely coated by the sauce. Using tablespoons (the silverware kind, this is not an exact science), scoop out the cookies onto aluminum foil and the top with a small sprinkle of salt. Let sit out for about an hour to harden up or pop them in the fridge if you’re in a rush. Store for up to 4 days in a airtight container, with wax paper or aluminum foil between the layers.
