White Chocolate Pecan Pumpkin Cookies

28 Sep

I realize I am a week late getting on board with the whole fall baking thing. After the lull we had midsummer, life has gotten crazy busy again!

There have been family weddings (3 down, 1 to go!), mother-daughter weekends, and the beginning of my hubby’s soccer season

All good things…just busy! I had a day all to myself this weekend and decided to dive right into a fall food extravaganza. First up are these gems.


A twist on your traditional oatmeal cookie, these treats have a slight pumpkin flavor with the occasional surprise of white chocolate chips and pecan pieces to keep things interesting.


White Chocolate Pecan Pumpkin Cookies

Makes 18-20 small cookies

*The cookies don’t spread much during baking. The dough was too sticky to press down before they went in the oven. Immediately after taking them out of the oven, I gently pressed them down with criss-cross pattern using a fork. 

3/4 cup all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/16 teaspoon ginger

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened to room temperature

1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/3 cup pure maple syrup

1 egg

1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree

1 1/2 cup oats (I used quick cooking but old-fashioned should work too)

1/4 cup pecans, chopped

1/4 cup white chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon.

2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add maple syrup and beat to combine. Add egg and beat to combine. Next, add pumpkin puree and mix until combined. Gradually add flour mixture to the bowl and mix just until the dry ingredients are incorporated. Fold in pecans and white chocolate chips.

3. Scoop cookies onto a baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly browned. Gently press down on cookies using a fork to flatten them slightly. Remove to a wire cooling rack.
