Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Cookies

Pumpkin Cranberry Nut Cookies are loaded with old fashioned uncooked rolled oats, dried cranberries, walnuts, and pure pumpkin. The flavor of pumpkin is subtle and almost completely hidden in this cookie, making it even harder for any non-pumpkin-lovers not to fall in love with them or this recipe.

These little cookies have enough warm spice flavor in them to give you a welcome sensation of the fall season!

These cookies are moist and chewy on the inside with a slight crunch on the outside. They are filled with sweet and nutty flavors from the cranberries and walnuts combined to give each cookie an amazing taste!

I only used enough pure pumpkin to carefully balance all the flavors in the cookies and enough pumpkin pie spice to give them a warm spice flavor, not over-powering.  These are small cookies, so you can eat two of these cuties and not feel overly guilty.

Enjoy them with your favorite coffee, espresso or glass of milk and they will satisfy any cookie cravings you may have during the day.  We promise.
I also have to tell you about these amazing silicone cookware mats that I have been using and how much I absolutely LOVE them!  If you're interested in them, I've added a link where you can find these silicone mats. 

I have to tell you they are a great little find!  They are completely oven safe non-stick rubber mats that you place over your baking sheets when baking and can be reused a hundred times.  Then wipe them clean, making them ideal for easy cleanup!
