Great Pumpkin Cookies

(Shared recipe submitted by Francine T. Ryan.)

Makes about 20 cookies

Fran writes: "The Great Pumpkin Cookies recipe has been one of my favorites for Halloween. The neighbors are sure to know that, when Halloween rolls around, I can be counted on to have bags of these wonderful mouth watering cookies at hand. They even prefer these to candy. What a compliment. You can double the recipe if you use canned pumpkin, since you usually have a lot leftover."


Preheat oven to 350° F. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Cream butter, gradually add sugars, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Alternate additions of dry ingredients and pumpkin, mixing well after each addition. Stir in chocolate chips or candies. For each cookie, drop 1/4 cup dough onto lightly greased cookie sheet; spread into shape using a thin metal spatula. Bake at 20 to 25 minutes until cookies are firm and lightly browned.
