I was messing around in my kitchen wondering what kind of cookie to make. My husband asked for raisin filled cookies, but I wanted to "Bam" them up a bit and tossed in some canned pumpkin and voila! Very tasty indeed. Just a nice hint of pumpkin flavoring.

How to Make Pumpkin Raisin Filled Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease your cookie sheets and set aside. Make the filling by cooking together raisins, brown sugar flour boiling water and cinnamon. Cook until thick; set aside to cool.
  2. in a large mixing bowl cream together sugars, butter, Crisco, pumpkin, and vanilla until fluffy.
  3. Sift together the dry ingredients and add to wet mixture. Gradually add buttermilk; mix well. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or more.
