If you enjoy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, these made with Pumpkin Pudding will put you into overload!
They were soft, chewy, dare I say… moist.
These cookies were just beyond good. I can’t believe we ate them ALL. I didn’t give any of these away. No sharing. No giving away. Nope!
Well, and I did share some with Annie.
She is so curious when I’m taking my pictures for the blog. She wants to get in and check out whatever it is I’ve made.
I liked these as is – Au Natural, if you will.
But… then I came across Pumpkin Spice Cream Cheese and my world changed.
I mean, basic cookies are great, but adding cream cheese and sugar and making a cookie sandwich is just so much WAYYYYY BETTER!!
Wow! I thought I died when I tasted these bad boys!
But, I couldn’t stop there, I added a bit of cream to the mixture which thinned it out and drizzled it over my cookies.
Yes, these cookies are a HUGE danger to your waistline. Proceed with caution if you are not going to share them.

I've been looking for a way to use up the Pumpkin Spice Pudding Mix I bought last season that didn't involve making a pudding or kool whip dessert... prepared, this pudding isn't my favorite. But I'm pretty certain these cookies will be FABulous! I'll be using a few white chips and dried cranberries in place of the chocolate chips or raisins. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
