Pumpkin Cookies, these are absolutely delicious! 

This pumpkin cookie recipe has been generously shared by one of our great cooks, Carina. She's always coming up with great recipes, and here we have Carina's Pumpkin Cookies.
These are so delicious be sure you make up plenty!

Pumpkin recipes are always popular around the Fall time when you can buy fresh pumpkins, perhaps you pick your own from a field, as Carina did below. You can, of course, buy ready-made pumpkin puree from the store, usually canned. Pumpkin puree is used for a multitude of recipes, from savory to sweet.

For this recipe, Carina has made her own pumpkin puree, but of course, you can buy ready-made puree from the store if you don't have the time to make your own. 

This pumpkin cookies recipe is adaptable too. Instead of raisins, you could use other dried fruit, such as cranberries, or swap for chocolate chips. Whatever you decide, they'll taste delicious!

    1. Hi, they are crispy on the outside and chewy inside. If you wish for crispy, just keep them in the oven for another 5 minutes, but keep an eye they don’t burn

  1. prep time was…. more…. than 5 minutes!! cookies came out very good (i did half the raisins and half the nuts (pecan) because of household preferences, probably should have done full amts.though). great with coffee or cold glass of milk.

  2. Has anyone made these using LESS sugar? We like things less sweet but want to make sure the recipe isn’t already that way or if using 3/4 cup would ruin the texture.
