Pumpkin Mania: Part One

I came across this recipe the other day for pumpkin cookies and have been looking forward to getting these in the oven. I did modify a few things. It calls for chocolate chips but the thought of chocolate and pumpkin didn’t do it for my taste buds. Instead, I added in some raisins. They turned out pretty good. The consistency is quite cakey and fluffy. It would have been nice to get some crunch in there, walnuts would be a great addition. next time.

I still have a bunch of pumpkin left over so stay tuned for the next installment of Pumpkin Mania!!
