Recipe Friday Nov. 27th Pumpkin Oatmeal Raisin cookies

Got this recipe from TastyKitchen. They're really good, a soft cookie if you like that kind. Steve would rather eat chocolate chip all the time, but I am not a chocolate fan.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
2 c. flour
1 1/3 c. quick cooking oatmeal
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. butter or margarine softened
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 c. sugar
1 c. canned pumpkin
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. chopped walnuts or pecans
3/4 c. raisins

Preparation instructions:

  1. Measure dry ingredients together, combine well. Preheat oven to 350 F. Lightly grease baking sheets, (I used parchment).
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine butter or margarine, brown and white sugars together, beat until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla, mix well.
  3. Add flour mixture, mix well. Stir in nuts and raisins. Drop by rounded teaspoonsful onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 14-16 min. or until cookies are lightly browned and set in the center. cool on large bakins sheets 2 minutes, remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes about 4 dozen 120 calories per cookie.
