Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 cups shredded carrot
  • 1 cup golden raisins

Directions

Preheat oven to 350.

In medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in the pumpkin and vanilla.

In separate bowl, stir together the flours, oatmeal, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and spices; stir into the creamed mixture.

Stir in carrots and raisins, and drop onto cookie sheet.  Bake in preheated oven for 8-10 minutes.  Allow to cool for a minute or two before transferring to wire racks.  Makes approximately4 dozen cookies.

Note

You may notice that there’s more sugar in the picture than the recipe calls for.  That’s because originally I mad this with a full cup (1/2 white, 1/2 brown sugar), but I thought they came out too sweet for my purposes, so I reduced it to 2/3 cup (1/3 each) in this recipe.
