Great Pumpkin Cookie Recipe
by: Gayle Carmichael
2 c. flour
1 cup quick or old fashioned oats (uncooked)
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. salt
1 c. butter or margarine (softened)
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1 c. sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 t. vanilla
1 c. pumpkin
1c. choc. cips or raisins or nuts (whatever you like)
Preheat oven to 350
In a medium bowl: Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, & salt
In a large bowl: Cream butter, gradually adding sugars, beating til light & fluffy (I use a little less sugar than called for). Add egg & vanilla & mix well.
Alternate adding dry ingredients & pumpkin to butter/sugar mixture, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chips, raisins, nuts, etc.
Use a lightly greased cookie sheet & bake 12 to 18 min. (for large cookies) until cookies are firm & lightly browned.
