2. Fall Pumpkin Cinnamon Horse Cookies
1/2 can of pumpkin 1 tbsp cinnamon 2 1/4 cups of oats 1/4 cup of molasses 1/2 cup of brown sugar
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees, and grease a cookie sheet or two, if you need to. Most of them these days are nonstick. (I sound like I’ve been alive forever)
- In a large mixing bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, molasses, and pumpkin. Mix until blended.
- Roll into small balls with your hands. I recommend about 1″ in diameter balls for some normal-sized treats. As you go, place these balls on the cookie sheets.
- They do not rise or spread or anything, so you can place them as close to each other as 1 1/2 inches or so… ** If you’re making your treat balls, and they seem to be falling apart a bit, you can always add more molasses to thicken the ‘batter’.
- Place into the oven, and let bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on your oven.
- Pull them out of the oven. They should be a bit dried out, but still a teeny bit squishy when you poke them a bit. They should not be crunchy.
- Before they cool and before you remove them from the cookie sheet, sprinkle the tops of them evenly with the cinnamon.
