PUMPKIN OATMEAL COOKIES
(This is really just a standard oatmeal cookie recipe, with half as
much sugar and pumpkin substituted for the butter. I made it for an
office meeting last summer substituting applesauce for the butter, and
nobody noticed that they weren't ordinary, high-fat oatmeal cookies.)
1 cup canned or cooked pumpkin
1 cup brown sugar
Egg replacer for 2 eggs (I used Eggbeaters, but one could try a vegan
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon cloves
3 cups oatmeal
1 cup raisins
Thoroughly mix pumpkin and brown sugar; then beat in egg substitute.
Gradually mix in flour, soda, and spices, then mix in oatmeal and raisins.
Drop by spoonfuls on non-stick or oil-sprayed cookie sheets. Bake at
350 degrees for 10-20 minutes. Makes 4-5 dozen.
