Pumpkin Spice No Bake Cookies

No bake cookies are some of my favorite things … tasty, easy and no need to heat up your kitchen!  And when I saw these pumpkin spice no bake cookies over at Aunt Peg’s Recipe Box (pinned to my sweet stuff Pinterest board) … I knew I wanted to give them a try and share them with you!  Just in time for Thanksgiving!!

So, let’s {taste this} and make these pumpkin spice no bake cookies!!

These taste just like a cinnamon-y old school oatmeal cookie with the right amount of pumpkin spice goodness!  A batch of 55+ cookies was almost gone before lunch time at my office … that is always a good sign ;)

pumpkin spice no bake cookies
Yield:  around 55 cookies

2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter
2/3 cup milk
1 small box pumpkin spice pudding mix
3 1/2 cups quick cook oats
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
pumpkin pie spice to sprinkle on top (optional)

In a large pan, stir together sugar, butter and milk.  Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 2 minutes.  Turn off the heat and stir in the pudding mix until thoroughly incorporated.  Stir in vanilla and oats.  Allow to stand for 5 minutes to thicken.

Drop by tablespoons onto waxed paper (I actually used a small cookie scoop from Pampered Chef that worked perfectly!) and sprinkle with pumpkin pie spice.  Allow to cool completely and store in an air tight container.

These will travel perfectly if you are heading out of town for Thanksgiving and they make a unique addition to your Fall dessert table!

Here are a few more of my favorite EASY cookies:


  1. No bake, hey? Ok, they do look so good – thanks for the recipe!

    I’m the blogger behind Aunt Peg’s Recipe Box, and I am so excited to see your version of this recipe! I love the touch of sprinkling a little pumpkin pie spice on them!
    These cookies are a must with my family now, so I’ve got to stock up on the pumpkin pie pudding mix before it’s gone after the holidays.
    Thank you for the link back to my post, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
    Oh, and I actually found you through Sumo’s Sweet Stuff

  30. Hi! I saw this featured on Sumo’s Sweet Stuff and had to find out who made them! They look delicious and can’t wait to try the recipe…might have to be next summer, though, because I have no idea where I’d find pumpkin spice pudding mix in England. If anyone knows, please please share your valuable knowledge with me!! :-)

  31. those look so good! i’m totally gonna try these soon. :) thanks for sharing!

  32. These look super yummy Keri! Pinning and featuring tomorrow! Thanks for sharing at Mom On Timeout!

  33. Oooh, these sound really good! Definitely saving this recipe!

  34. Hey Keri, Thanks so much for linking up and linking back last week at the Humble Brag! Hope to see you back tomorrow to link up more great projects. Also, YOU WERE FEATURED! so be sure to stop by and grab a button – you earned it!

  35. Hi Keri! I just featured your delicious recipe in my Thanksgiving round up post! Thank you so much for sharing at Mom On Timeout!

  36. Love no bake cookies and this sounds delish however I live in Minnesota and have never seen pumpkin spice pudding. Where can it be purchased from. Thanks.

  37. These sound absolutely wonderful! I can’t find pumpkin spice pudding mix anywhere. Crud. But I’ll keep searching. Thanks!

  38. Just made these with my 5yr old. She had a great time, and says they rock!! thanks!

  39. I made these cookies and they are to die for! Thank you so much! I’m so glad I found you! Happy Thanksgiving!

  40. Use Butterscotch Pudding, add spice if needed. I have a pumpkin mousse recipe that uses it and it adds a nice richness to the background… now you can make it all year long!!

    • How much pumpkin spice do you add to the butterscotch pudding?

      • Hi Judy – this recipe actually used a box of pumpkin spice pudding mix and I only used the pumpkin pie spice to sprinkle on top. If you are going to use butterscotch, you may want to start with 1/2 teaspoon and increase the spice to taste. Hope that helps and thanks so much for stopping by!

  41. Must have an unusual taste, but I adore vanilla… I wonder how this pumpkin stuff tastes. Never tried!
    Thanks for the tips! ;)

  42. Made pumpkin no bake cookies today very good.
