I love making fall desserts like these yummy pumpkin oatmeal scotchies. Such a wonderful tasting cookie. I made a double batch and froze some for a later time. You never know when you have unexpected people coming over and you need a snack to feed them. All you have to do is pull the cookies out of the freezer and allow them to thaw on the counter for an hour or so. Do not thaw them in the microwave.
As it turns out, her son did end up liking the pumpkin oatmeal scotchies, naturally.
