Browned Butter Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

Diane Hopson Smith


First cookies of the Holiday season and they were a hit. I had just finished baking and cooling these cookies when the we got a call from our mechanic that our vehicle was ready to be picked up. I boxed up the cookies and we headed in to pick up our vehicle. Before I could even pay, the guys had just about gobbled up all the cookies.

What better compliment can you get than that!

Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Browned Butter Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies


  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a small pan over medium heat, melt butter. Continued heating butter until it turn a light amber color. Remove from heat and set aside allowing butter to cool down some before adding to wet ingredients.
  3. Combine dry ingredients, raisins/craisens, chips and nuts in a bowl; set aside.
  4. In a mixing bowl; whisk together pumpkin puree, egg and vanilla.
  5. Add butter to wet ingredients; stir in dry ingredient just until mixed. Don't over mix. NOTE: I did all mixing by hand and not with a mixer.
  6. With a cookie scoop, drop onto cookie sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake 14 to 16 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
