First, melt two sticks of butter. Let this brown up..takes a few minutes but worth the wait!
While the butter is browning, chop up about a cup of dried cherries. You could use raisons (gag) or cranberries, but I prefer the cherries.
In a separate bowl, combine your dry ingredients: 2 cup+1 TB flour, 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice, 1 tsp baking soda and about 2 tsp of cinnamon. Pinch of salt
Next add 1 1/2 c oats
This is when I add my dried fruit, toss to coat
Next add a bag of white chocolate chips. Also, toss to coat
Once your dry ingredients are done, and your butter is browned up, add to the butter: 1/4 c dark molasses
One egg yolk
3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar and 2 tsp vanilla
Lastly, 3/4 cup pumpkin
Pour the butter pumpkin mixture into your dry ingredients and w a spoon until incorporated
Small scooper, scoop out your cookies
Bake 350° for about 7-10 minutes. These are dark in color bc of the browned butter and molasses, so they may look too brown but they aren't
I glaze mine with a brown sugar icing (from my pull apart cinnamon roll loaf snapguide) but these are wonderful either way. Icing or no icing ..but you should totally do the icing!
Fluffy marshmallow cream cream cheese frosting is good too :)
Enjoy! Happy fall y'all x
