I made these and thought my husband would'nt try them. He did and ate more than I did. They stay moist, and keep for about a week.

SOOO good

I read all of the suggestions for improving these cookies. I subbed 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour for an equal amount of white flour. I reduced the granulated sugar by 1/2 cup. I also added 1 teaspoon each of pumpkin pie spice AND cinnamon. I also added 1/3 cup of oat bran. These cookies were much better the second day. They aren't pretty, but they are tasty.

These were some of the best!

a plain oatmeal cookie; little spice or pumpkin flavor comes through. Just OK.

A little bit disappointed

I think I should have tried some of the "tweaks" listed here on the reviews. I did the recipe "as is" and they turned out a little bit too cake-like for me. I could hardly tell there was pumpkin. Guess I need to keep looking for a great Pumpkin Oatmeal cookie recipe.

these cookies are really great. I made a batch for work and everyone loved them. I also replaced the raisins with craisins. Awesome

Love these cookies! I increased the oatmeal to 2 cups and added 1 tsp. allspice, yummy!

Pretty Good!

These are pretty good, but wish they tasted more pumpkin-y! I substituted 1/2 cup of whole-wheat flour, and cut the granulated sugar down to 1/2 cup. (They're plenty sweet this way.) I used 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice + 1/2 t. cinnamon. Next time, I'll add more spices. I also used dried cranberries instead of the raisins - either would be fine, I'm sure. Also, would add more of these next time, too, plus increase the walnuts.
