I am so excited to have two contributors at The Purposeful Mom! This week Jennifer from A Heart for My Home will be sharing a delicious fall recipe for her first monthly post!
It’s officially Fall time now and for me it’s the time to start baking all things apple and pumpkin. This year I got the idea from a friend to make pumpkin flavored no bake cookies. So I thought I would attempt to use my traditional Chocolate No Bake Cookie recipe and just make a few slight changes.
These cookies are fairly cheap, super easy, and take only a few short minutes to make. In fact much like the original version of this cookie I usually have all the ingredients needed on hand.
You will need:
1 1/2 sticks butter or margarine
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cups sugar (I use plain white sugar)
1 1/2 Tablespoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice (you could adjust this amount to your liking)
1 – 3.4 oz. package vanilla instant pudding
3 cups quick cooking oats
First in a thick heavy pot (I use my pressure cooker pot) combine your butter, milk and vanilla. Turn on low heat until your butter melts.
Turn up your heat and bring this mixture to a rolling boil. As soon as it starts boiling set your timer and stir while boiling for 2 minutes.
Once the pudding is mixed well add in your quick cooking oats and stir until all the oats are coated with the butter/sugar/pudding mix. Then using a teaspoon scoop out your cookies and place them on either aluminum foil or waxed paper and allow them to cool. The cookies will be a little gooey to begin with but will be ready to eat when they are cool and have firmed up.
