Yields: (Appx 5 doz)
Prep: 15 Mins.
Bake: 10 to 12 Mins.
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon double-acting baking powder
Pinch of salt
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1/4 cup toffee bits
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a couple of baking sheets with silpats or parchment paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle, cream butter, and sugars until light and fluffy for a few minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl and add eggs, pumpkin puree and vanilla extract; beat until combined.
Place a sieve over mixing bowl of wet ingredients, and sift in flour, spices, baking soda and powder, and salt; mix on low speed until well combined. (Do not over mix). Add oats and toffee bits, mix on low just until combined.
Using a mini scoop (I use a 1/2-tablespoon size) and place dough in mounds onto prepared baking sheet, spacing at least 1" apart. Bake for 12 minutes (turning half way through baking) until slightly golden brown around edges. Cool on baking sheet for one minute; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining cookie dough. ~ Enjoy!
Store cookies, once they're completely cooled, in an airtight container.
