Right about now you might be asking yourself, “Do I really need another recipe for a pumpkin dessert?” The answer, my friends, is a resounding “yes!” Sure, pumpkin treats are everywhere this time of year, but this isn’t your average pumpkin cookie. Trust me.
What sets this recipe apart is the fact that you don’t even need to turn on your oven. These cookies are made on the stovetop in minutes so you can go from pumpkin craving to craving satisfied in 30 minutes flat.
First, gather your ingredients. You’ll see that in addition to pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice, I’ve added a bit of creamy peanut butter and toffee bits to these cookies to add even more fall flavor. You can find the complete list of ingredients in the recipe below.
Start by combining oats, peanut butter, pumpkin puree and toffee bits together in a large mixing bowl.
Next, combine sugar, heavy cream and butter together in a saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Allow it to boil vigorously, stirring frequently, for about 1 minute and 30 seconds.
Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the vanilla, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Pour the butter mixture over the oat mixture in the mixing bowl and, working quickly, stir everything until well-combined. Then, drop the mixture by heaping tablespoons onto a waxed paper-lined baking sheet and cool completely.
Carefully remove the cooled cookies from baking sheet to serve. Although I kept my cookies on the simpler side, you can certainly go all in and drizzle them with a little bit of melted chocolate for extra flavor and flair!
