Makes approx 60 cookies.  This recipie is really easy, and the cookies are so good. Perfect for your Halloween party, bake sale, or anytime you want something sweet.  These cookies are also perfect if you are like me, and don't really care for sickenly rich, sweet desserts.




Ingredients:


1 cup vegetable shortening or unsalted butter (softened)

¾ cup granulated sugar

¾ cup brown sugar

2 eggs

3 Tbsp water

1 15 oz can pumpkin puree

1 tsp vanilla

1 ½ cup flour

½ tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

1tsp allspice

1 tsp nutmeg

3 cups uncooked oatmeal (not instant)

½ cup chopped walnuts

½ cup raisins (if desired)


Directions:


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and grease a couple of cookie sheets. Beat together the shortening, sugars, pumpkin, eggs, water, vanilla, and spices.  Beat until well blended.  Add flour, salt, and baking soda, and mix until just blended. Add the oatmeal, nuts, and raisins. Mix until just blended.



Spoon mixture onto cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart, and bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are slightly golden. Enjoy.

You will really like this recipe. It tastes like pumpkin bread. My kids aren't huge fans of things that have pumpkin in them, but they couldn't stop eating these. They don't really care for nuts or raisins, so I just omited them in the batch I made.
