Pumpkin Oatmeal Scotchies

Pumpkin Oatmeal Scotchies

This week on Make and Takes I shared my pumpkin oatmeal scotchies recipe. If you like regular oatmeal scotchies, you will love the pumpkin version. I personally think they are much better:) Pumpkin and butterscotch are the perfect combination for this fall cookie. Check out my post on Make and Takes and bake a batch this weekend.

Since it is Friday and we love our readers-we have a special treat for all of you-an apron giveway! I love aprons, not only do they keep me clean in the kitchen, but they make me look pretty too.  Josh doesn’t have an apron, but maybe we should change that:)  For details and to enter, head on over to our giveaway page! We will only count comments on the giveaway page. Good luck and Happy Friday!

    Delicious sounding cookies, I love anything with pumpkin in it. Aprons are cute – I would totally wear one but my room mates might think I’ve started cross dressing!

    Oatmeal based cookies are the best. I have my thoughts spinning on some apple butter caramel chip ones that I’m going to try making today. I like the idea of adding pumpkin too. I bet they’re super moist

    These look yummy!

    I have been making your baked oatmeal recipe lately. It is delicious!!! I was wondering if you have ever used pumpkin instead of the applesauce and pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon? I might try that this weekend. I love everything pumpkin and am enjoying seeing all your pumpkin creations!

  33. Shari — October 29, 2010 @ 10:24 am

    Ok, I just printed like 25 recipes from your blog!!!! I have added it to the blog list on my blog, so I can see when you add new recipes! I am always looking for new ideas…thank you!
