Pumpkin Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

It's September, which means FALL!! And with Fall comes everything PUMPKIN! It's time, time for Pumpkin and Fall and so I made up these Pumpkin Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, they are so delicious and perfect for this time of year. 

Now, I'll admit, I'm not a huge fan of pumpkin, but the pumpkin in here is very mild and my whole family enjoyed these cookies. 

YIELD: About 30 cookies

1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup of canned pumpkin (NOT Pumpkin Pie Filling)
2 eggs
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 cups of flour (I used whole wheat)
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup raisins

-Heat oven to 350°
-Beat the butter until creamy. Mix in sugars well
-Add the pumpkin, eggs, and vanilla and beat well
-Add flour, baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon and mix well
-Add oats and raisins and mix well 
-Drop by teaspoonfuls onto baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes

These are so easy to adjust, they'd be good with more or less pumpkin, good with craisins or even chocolate chips! YUM
So easy to make and deliciously tasty!
