So I don't have a photo of these cookies but the girls and I made them a few days before Thanksgiving! If you are looking for a good pumpkin cookie recipe or enjoy a oatmeal raisin cookies, then this is the recipe for you. You can find the original at Nestle's Very Best Baking site.
Pumpkin Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (makes about 36-40)
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 sticks (1 cup) butter or margaine, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup pumpkin (like Libby's)
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350° F and lightly grease baking sheets. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in medium bowl. Mix butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large bowl until well blended. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract; mix well. Add flour mixture; mix well. Stir in nuts and raisins. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets. Bake 14 to 16 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned and set in centers. Cool on baking sheets for a few minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Since I don't have a pic of the cookies, I figured I'd leave you with a photo of Thanksgiving - this is Ebabe with potato head parts in her ears! Daddy calls her a little Hobbit.
