Dorm Life: Pumpkin No-Bake Cookies

Dorm Life: Pumpkin No-Bake Cookies


Earlier today, my mom sent me this link to Jen’s No-Bake Pumpkin Cookies.  My mouth started watering as I read about pumpkin, pecans, and oatmeal boiled together and formed into yummy cookies.  I don’t know if it was the fact that these cookies sounded so good or if I was just that tired of studying vestiges and recapitulations, but I suddenly had to make pumpkin cookies.  No question.

I had a problem, however.  Out of the 8 ingredients in Jen’s cookies, I only had 3.  Looks like it’s time to improvise!

Using what I had available in my dorm room, I whipped up a single-serve batch of cookies within minutes.  Be sure to double or triple the recipe if you plan to keep any of these around because I inhaled this whole batch of treats as soon as I finished taking pictures.
