Pumpkin Perfect Oatmeal Cookies are chewy in texture and golden in color. They are easily made with a convenience cookie mix, substituting the butter with pumpkin and a touch of oil. The pumpkin helps to reduce the fat and cholesterol in this recipe. It also works to maintain the moistness, while creating an attractive and deliciously sweet treat.
- 1 pkg. (17.5 oz.) oatmeal cookie mix
- 1/2 cup LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
- 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 large egg
- 1 cup sweetened dried cranberries, raisins or nuts (optional)
PREHEAT oven to 375º F.
COMBINE cookie mix, pumpkin, oil and egg in large bowl. Stir in dried cranberries, if desired. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheets.
BAKE for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned and set in centers. Cool on baking sheets for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store cookies in covered container.

Review This Recipe
I made these cookies for my husband. I like to try and find recipies that will not only satisfy his cookie cravings, but are also healthy. This one completely fit the bill. I was a bit surprised to see pumpkin as a main ingredient, but they tasted fantastic. Very moist, and the combination of pumpkin and oatmeal went very well together.
