Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

 
OK, it's not officially fall until September 22, but there have been a few mornings this past week that their was an ever so slight touch of fall in the air! So...... that means I bring out my pumpkin recipes! I even have a Pinterest board just for pumpkin recipes!
 
I found this recipe at www.MomOnTimeout.com and it definitely got pinned to the pumpkin board! I used pecans instead of walnuts for my recipe. Either one would be great!
 
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ cup wheat flour
1 ½ cups old fashioned oats
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
½ t. pumpkin pie spice
1/8 t. all spice
1 C. butter, softened
1 C. granulated sugar
1 C. brown sugar
1 C. canned pumpkin
1 egg, room temperature
2 t. vanilla
1 C. chopped pecans
1 C. raisins
Combine flour, oats, baking soda and spices in a medium bowl and set aside. Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and mix until well combined. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla and stir until well combined. Slowly add flour mixture stirring just until combined. Stir in pecans and raisins. Chill dough for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350. Using a cookie scoop (mine is from Pampered Chef), drop cookie dough onto lightly greased baking sheets or baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Press dough down slightly with back of spoon. This dough does not spread much when baking. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until cookies are just lightly browned. Cool slightly before transferring to wire racks to cool completely.
 
 
 
 
Make up a batch or two of these cookies for your family, your neighbors, or your friends at work! I packaged my in Ziplock snack bags and made a "bag topper" with my message.....
 
Happy Fall Yall! (Even if it is a wee bit early!)
