Day 13 Chewy Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies
These flavors go perfectly together! Basically I took my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe, took out half of the butter/ shortening and added pumpkin puree. I also changed the spices around a little bit. The golden raisins are so good in this recipe. You could also try cranberries though.
3 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons butter flavored shortening
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup golden raisins
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, butter flavored shortening, pumpkin, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, and vanilla until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, cloves, and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Stir in the oats and raisins. Drop by medium cookie scoop onto large Pampered Chef stone.
3. Bake 14-16 minutes until light and golden. Do not overbake. Cookies continue baking 1-2 minutes after they come out of oven.
