Fall is officially here

My family loves these cookies. It has been a tradition to make these when fall rolls around, so it just doesn't feel like fall unless we've made them. I love that they are soft and chewy. They are also really wonderful with chocolate chips in them. I used to (and still) love making them pumpkin shaped and decorating them like jack-o-lanterns with candy corn teeth. I plan to carry on this tradition when I have children of my own.

Fun and healthy

These cookies were so easy to make. And with the oats and pumpkin, they are good for you. They were a big hit at Christmas this year.

Little pumpkin flavor

This is a very easy, good cookie but it has very little "pumpkin" flavor. The second batch I made I added about 2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice and it made all the difference in the world.

Just made these--came out so well cannot wait to try variations! I did add 1/3 tsp. cloves, chopped pecans, and dried cranberries, and 1 1/2 C. oatmeal total. I think they would spread too much with less.
