Remember I mentioned that I love pumpkin....hold on your hats.  That icing dripping along the sides the cookies, ooh my stars.  Why does it have to be 11 pm here and I will go to bed thinking about those cookies. Anyway,  here the decadent recipe.


1 cup Ready Mix (pie Ready) Canned Pumpkin
¾ cup White Sugar
2 Eggs, beaten
One 3.4-oz Box Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
¾ cup Canola Oil
1 tsp Freshly Grated, peeled ginger
½ tsp Salt
½ tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Baking Soda
2¼ cups Flour
1 cup Rolled Oats
(for Chewier Cookies, add additional oats

Fresh Ginger Icing:

1 cup Powdered Sugar
1 tsp Freshly Grated, peeled ginger
½ tsp Vanilla


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. In large mixing bowl add pumpkin, sugar, eggs, pudding mix, oil, ginger, salt and cinnamon.

3. In another bowl combine baking soda, flour and oats, mix.

4. Add dry mixture to wet mixture, completely blend together by folding.

5. Drop cookie batter by spoonfuls onto nonstick cookie sheets, about 3 inches apart.

6. Bake 10-12 mins or until brown. Cooking time depends on size of cookies. Let cool on rack.
