Pumpkin Oat Cookies

This is my spin on pumpkin cookies and a family favorite, not just at holiday time! These very soft cookies have a wonderful flavor with the perfect amount of spice. The fruit (raisins or Craisins) add a little additional sweetness and chewiness while the nuts are crunchy. You have it all in this cookie! This recipe makes a lot of cookies and they could easily be glazed though my family thinks they are perfect the way they are. Place a walnut half on each cookie before baking if you like, or leave nuts out altogether. Enjoy!

These were fabulous! If you like fall flavors with the pumpkin spice you will love these. I used the optional walnuts and raisins in mine and made these cookies super yummy. These cookies are more cake-like than a typical oatmeal cookie. Keep an eye on your cookies... in our oven, they baked for about 12 minutes. The Test Kitchen
