1 cup brown sugar firmly packed
1 cup cooked or canned pumpkin
1/2 cup oil (I use canola)
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp ginger
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
In mixing bowl, beat together sugar, pumpkin, oil and vanilla.
Sift together dry ingredients. Add to mixing bowl ingredients and stir until smooth. Blend in raisins and nuts.
Drop by spoonfuls on greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Makes 3 to 4 dozen. No eggs are needed in these moist, soft cookies.
These are the BEST cookies. A must to make each Halloween season! This recipe is from my mom.
