  • 2 cups brown sugar packed
  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 15 oz. can Libby's solid pack pumpkin puree NOT pumpkin pie mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods)
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tbsp. ground ginger (1 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1/2 tbsp. ground cloves (1 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 cups coarsely chopped pecans


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Lightly grease baking sheets; set aside.
  • Combine oil, brown sugar, pumpkin, eggs, salt, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger, cloves and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Mix well with an electric mixer until creamy.
  • Add the flour and pecans.
  • Stir with a wooden spoon until combined.
  • With a one-quarter cup cookie scoop, drop cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake at 350° for 15-20 minutes or until done. (See note below).


NOTE: I was baking six trays in two ovens at a time. My cookies took closer to 25-30 minutes to bake completely.
NOTE: To determine doneness: touch the cookie with your finger. If the cookie springs back or makes an indentation, keep cooking. If the tops still look gooey, keep cooking. I had some cookies bake in 20 minutes but most of them took between 25-30 minutes to bake completely.
