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. Pumpkin Oatmeal Scotchies are a MUST make for fall.


These chewy and soft oatmeal cookies are a fall favorite. Add them to your pumpkin baking list today! I am sure you will bake them over and over. They are on repeat at our house during the fall months. And FYI-they freeze well and taste just as good right out of the freezer:)

Happy pumpkin baking!

  1. They are really yummy! I only used 1/2 C of each of the sugars. I would only use 1 C of the chips next time as I felt they were a little overwhelming. Mine aren’t as pretty as the picture you have posted here. I live at a high altitude so that might be why they didn’t spread much as they baked. It may have also been because I didn’t use all of the sugar. Thanks! I will definitely make them again. Yum!

  2. 5 stars
    Very good.  I used cinnamon chips and added walnuts, baked the full 12 minutes.  They don’t spread so I flattened them out too.  

  3. The thing I do not understand is pumpkin purée is pumpkin is what is used to make pumpkin pie. I bake pumpkins and make mine from scratch since most pumpkin pie filling is mostly squash. Just get a pumpkin cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, bake until tender and process. It usually takes about an hour. The left over can be frozen up to one year. I do it every year without fail.
