Around our house it just wouldn't be autumn with out our favorite Great Pumpkin Cookies. They are moist, chewy, and easy to change up with your favorite stir-ins.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 20 cookies
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1⅓ cups quick or old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • 1-1/2 cups butterscotch chips
  1. PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
  2. COMBINE flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla extract; mix well. Add flour mixture; mix well. Stir in nuts and raisins. Drop ¼ cup dough onto prepared baking sheet; spread into 3-inch circle or oval. Repeat with remaining dough.
  3. BAKE for 14 to 16 minutes or until cookies are firm and lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Makes 20 extra-large cookies.
Ahhh: I like to use a regular cookie scoop; less is more, about 30 cookies.
