Welcome to #PumpkinWeek 2018 hosted by Love and Confections and A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures! This year is even bigger and better than ever with a giveaway! Thirty-nine bloggers from around the country are showcasing their best pumpkin dishes.
Get ready for Fall with over 130 pumpkin recipes throughout the week including cocktails, main courses, pizzas, pastas, pastries, breads, muffins, and plenty of desserts! Our PumpkinWeek Sponsors are helping us give away some great prizes.
Let me introduce our first recipe in #PumpkinWeek 2018. Chai Frosted Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies are my favorite new fall treat, holy cow my friends they are DELISH!
I absolutely adore pumpkin, oatmeal and Chai tea…and bringing all of these flavors together is simple perfection. The cookies are full of pumpkin flavor, spices, oats and Dixie Crystals pure cane sugar. The frosting adds just the subtle amount of Chai tea scrumptiousness which sets these cookies over the top.
My kids devoured these cookies and requested more, they are that good. I’ll be making them frequently all the way through the holiday season and you should too. Now be sure to enter the giveaway and stay tuned for another pumpkin recipe debuting on Wednesday. Happy fall ya’ll!!! Scroll down for today’s #PumpkinWeek recipes!
Some tips for making Chai Frosted Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies:
- I used a 1/2″ cookie scoop which makes a smaller bite-sized treat.
- Store in a covered container after making.
- If you need the frosting to set up quickly once you’ve frosted the cookies, place in the refrigerator for a few minutes.
Even more cookie inspiration found here:
- Dulce de Leche Oatmeal Cookie Sandwiches
- Chocolate Banana Cookies
- Chocolate Cherry Thumbprint Cookies
- 1/2 butter, softened
- 1.5 cups sugar
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1.5 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 Tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
- 1 cup quick cooking oats
- 1 Tablespoon butter, melted
- 3 Tablespoon milk
- 1 Chai Spice black tea bag
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- Preheat your oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
- In mixing bowl cream together butter and sugar, add in vanilla and egg and mix well.
- In separate bowl combine: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and Pumpkin Pie Spice.
- Gradually mix dry ingredients into butter mixture until blended. Add in oats until combined.
- Using small cookie scoop, place batter onto prepared baking sheets. Bake approximately 12-15 minutes depending on size.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool completely prior to frosing.
- FOR FROSTING: In a microwave safe bowl combine butter and milk, microwave approximately 30 seconds until butter is melted. Add tea bag to milk and butter mixture. Allow tea bag to steep in mixture 5 minutes. Squeeze excess liquid from tea bag and disard.
- Into tea mixture mix vanilla extract and powdered sugar until a smooth consistency is reached. You may need to add a bit more milk to thin reach the right consistency.
If you prefer a larger cookie, use a larger cookie scoop. Cook time may need to be adjusted. I frosted my cookies and popped them into the fridger for a few minutes to allow frosting to set up quicker.
