I was feeling fall-ish and I had a part of a can of pumpkin in the refrigerator. I decided to look for a pumpkin recipe and came across this one in the Lawler Iowa church cookbook.
I love using local cookbooks and knowing the person who submitted the recipe. I know if Marla made these cookies they are likely good!!
Here’s the recipe…
I followed the recipe almost to a T. I opted for butter and I only baked mine for 17 minutes. They started to get brown around the edges if I baked them any longer.
The batter was thick and gooey…see??
I used the middle size of my set of scoops for plopping out the dough. Find them HERE.
Here they are all frosted and ready to eat. The batch made about 40 cookies for me.
Everyone who has tried these has loved them! Gannon and Carver and the childcare kiddos wouldn’t stop begging for a second cookie.
I went to Walmart a couple of days after I made these and picked up a container of fall-themed sprinkles. I’m going to make them again and then sprinkle the frosting with some cute sprinkles.
The kids are really going to be even more excited about them!! Sprinkles kind of dress up a cookie too.
If you’re going anywhere and need to bring a fall treat, these are just the cookies to make…they are excellent!
Let me know what you think of them…

Many many persimmons here. I may substitute persimmon and grands and I cook these cookies while I keep the kids a week. Parents went cruising.
These cookies sound great and yummy. I like the fact that they have oatmeal in them.. A must try recipe for sure!. Thanks for sharing it.
I was just looking for a recipe like this, Jo! Are these less “cake-y” than the last pumpkin cookie recipe you shared? Those had chocolate chips and DS2 wasn’t as fond of those as I thought he might be. Thanks for sharing!
You’re correct. I must try this recipe. I’ll try to remember to let you know how they go over.
Your comment about the fall sprinkles dressing them up reminded me of something my grandmother used to say about finishing touches and “putting the lipstick on”!
I make these but use Maple extract in the frosting for an extra dose of Fall flavor.
I simply love anything pumpkin and you always have such nice recipes this time of year.
Could I use regular oatmeal as I never buy the (Quick) Oats. My family loves the crunch and texture with the Old Fashioned Oats.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving with your family and know that you are in my prayers every day Jo.
the regular oats may absorb more moisture so bake one to test. Add a bit of water if too dry.
Oh Grandma Jo, I would beg for a 2nd one too. You know that one is never enough. I am with Carver on this one. Sprinkles definitely call for more than one. LOL
