    Very Good!

    Maggie Volling from

    I made these and thought my husband would'nt try them. He did and ate more than I did. They stay moist, and keep for about a week.

    SOOO good

    These cookies were so good! The pumpkin didn't stand out too much

    Autumn Flavors

    Diane McSweeney from Federal Way, WA

    I read all of the suggestions for improving these cookies. I subbed 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour for an equal amount of white flour. I reduced the granulated sugar by 1/2 cup. I also added 1 teaspoon each of pumpkin pie spice AND cinnamon. I also added 1/3 cup of oat bran. These cookies were much better the second day. They aren't pretty, but they are tasty.

    These were some of the best!

    Belinda Garcia from Paso Robles, Ca

    These pumpkin oatmeal cookies were some of the best ever! So moist and delicious! They didnt last very long!

    plain

    a bird from Canton, MI

    a plain oatmeal cookie; little spice or pumpkin flavor comes through. Just OK.

  •  Star(s)

    A little bit disappointed

    Jeanna Johnson from Beaverton, OR

    I think I should have tried some of the "tweaks" listed here on the reviews. I did the recipe "as is" and they turned out a little bit too cake-like for me. I could hardly tell there was pumpkin. Guess I need to keep looking for a great Pumpkin Oatmeal cookie recipe.

  •  Star(s)

    excellent

    patricia byrd from BUENA PARK, CA

    these cookies are really great. I made a batch for work and everyone loved them. I also replaced the raisins with craisins. Awesome

    pumpkin-oatmeal-raisin cookies

    Carol Daugherty from East Hartford, CT

    Love these cookies! I increased the oatmeal to 2 cups and added 1 tsp. allspice, yummy!

  •  Star(s)

    Pretty Good!

    Mary Thomas from Las Vegas, NV

    These are pretty good, but wish they tasted more pumpkin-y! I substituted 1/2 cup of whole-wheat flour, and cut the granulated sugar down to 1/2 cup. (They're plenty sweet this way.) I used 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice + 1/2 t. cinnamon. Next time, I'll add more spices. I also used dried cranberries instead of the raisins - either would be fine, I'm sure. Also, would add more of these next time, too, plus increase the walnuts.

    Wonderful

    My husband can't stay away from them!

    Yummy!

    Joi Straaten from Sandy, UT

    I have been searching for a pumpkin cookie that's more cookie than cake-like - I think this is close! I used whole wheat pastry flour, old-fashioned rolled oats, added 1/2 tsp fresh nutmeg and 1/4 tsp ground cloves; 2 egg whites & chopped pecan, omitted the raisins and added dark chocolate chunks! They turned out soft & chewy, but not 'sticky' like most pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They got rave review from my children and a friend!

    Pumpkin Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

    BRENDA FARMER from HERMISTON, OR

    I was looking for a different kind of cookie to bake and found these. They were so easy to make and are they ever good. They have disappeared in a hurry!! Both my husband and my son just could not stay out of them, and kept saying they were so addictive. I will deffinately be making these again soon, they are a new favorite in this house.

    These are terrific oatmeal cookies. I can't keep them in the house - they are consumed as soon as they are baked! I subed 1/2 whole wheat flour and cut the shortening in half - they are the BEST!!

    Not Good

    Liz from

    I made these cookies and I am HIGHLY disappointed. They were flat, and you can hardly taste the pumpkin in them. I'm really sad I wasted the last bit of pumpkin I had in them. Ew. Definately won't make these again.

    Great Cookie Recipe!

    Elicia Saal from Mill Valley, CA

    I just made these pumpkin cookies. I omitted the raisins and added chocolate chips instead and I substituted 1/2 c. of the white flour for 1/2 c. of white whole wheat flour. They turned out moist and delicious. They only took 9 or 10 minutes to cook instead of the 12-14 minutes that the recipe states.

    Good Seasonal Treat

    Maureen Partyka from HINGHAM, MA

    I omitted the nuts due to allergies and baked the cookies a bit longer so they would be a bit crisper. They were wonderful and I will make them again.

    Moist and Sweet

    Erin Mulcahy from BEAVER FALLS, PA

    These cookies are moist and light in texture. I used chopped dates in place of the raisins. Next time I would add more cinnamon and maybe try dried cranberries. A nice change from the standard oatmeal cookie.

    Carol Holmik from Williamsville, NY

    I'm not a big fan of raisins, so I just doubled the walnuts. I also made a cream cheese frosting for the top of the cookie and made sure I kept them refrigerated. This is now one of my favorite cookies. They are absolutely delicious!

    Awesome soft cookies

    JOANNE VOLLER from RURAL HALL, NC

    These were easy to make and so delicious! I added extra raisins as we don't like nuts. This recipe has been added to my cookbook. They're very, very soft and wish they were a bit more chewy and less soft. Any ideas??

    These are good as they are, but great with a subst

    Laura Driver from Parkville, MO

    I've made this recipe a few times, and find it really delicious to substitute the 3/4 cup raisins for 1 1/2 cups of white chips. They are a little sweeter, and my friends have told me it is like having the frosting in the cookie! They are scrumptious with white chips!

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy for my tummy!

    NANCY SMITH from LAKE HAVASU CITY, AZ

    Excellent, soft, moist - now one of my favorites. In the next batch I may add 1/4 tsp. cloves and nutmeg for a little extra spice....
