3 Scrape down the bowl, and mix in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla and molasses.

4 In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, and mix until just combined.

5 Scrape down the bowl again with a rubber spatula, and slowly mix in the rolled oats and pumpkin pie spice.

6 Scoop out dough with a large cookie scoop and place on the parchment lined baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
