Mom's Pumpkin Cookies

These cookies bring back my childhood in fall. My mom would make them for every grade school Halloween party. They are soft and cake like and not overly sweet. I changed them so that they were alittle healthier but they are basically the same.

2 cups of AP Flour
2 cups of oats
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup of butter at room temperature
1 cup of brown sugar
1 cup of sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 16oz. cans of Pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1 1/2 cups of raisins

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Cream butter and sugars. Add in egg and vanilla. Alternate additions of the dry ingredients and the pumpkin. Mix in the raisins. It will be a loose creamy batter. Drop them on a greased cookie sheet and cook for 20 - 25 minutes. They won't really brown but they will set up. Take them out and cool on a cooling rack. They are even better the next day.
