Pumpkin Oatmeal Cream Pies
These insanely decadent cream pie cookies are a wonderful treat for fall. A simple pumpkin oatmeal cookie is filled with homemade caramel and marshmallow cream for an ultra rich dessert experience. Plan ahead for these sandwich cookies, though. They take a while to prepare.

I used cinnamon, ginger, and cloves for spices in the pumpkin filling but you can the spices you prefer most in pumpkin pie. Bake the bars until they are no longer wiggly and keep them stored in the refrigerator.
Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
These cookies are soft and chewy. One egg yolk is used as a binding and this small amount keeps the cookies from being cakey. There’s a ton of oats, making each cookie hearty and full of texture. Molasses and cinnamon offer warm fall flavors without overpowering the pumpkin flavor. Mix in a cup of your favorite dried fruit or chocolate chips to add variety to the recipe.
