Fall Favorites

I have been looking for a cookie recipe that was using fall type ingredients. This is perfect for Thanksgiving-time.

- Kathy Green from South Daytona/Fl

Great Mix and Match

These cookies turned out great! And the recipe is not fussy either. I substituted grated carrots for 1/2 the pumpkin (didn't have quite enough pumpkin left in the kitchen) and chopped dates for the raisins. The recipe still worked out just fine. The orange zest adds a really nice flavor to an otherwise standard cookie.

Celestial Oatmeal Cookies

I substituted the apple sauce for half of the butter. Mine were very moist as a batter: so I added a little more flour. I also added some orange zest to the icing. These were so yummy that I shared a plate with my neighbors! I will make them again! I left out the prunes. I even added some fresh dates to the end of the cookie dough and they were very good too.

Not to sweet and healthy!

These weren't to bad and my kids loved them. I used raisins and plan on using Craisins as well.

easy and unusual
