Pumpkins. They’re great for carving scary faces and decorating around the Thanksgiving table. But mostly I love to eat them. Pass me some pumpkin bread and a slice of pumpkin pie. Gimme the pumpkin lattes and the pumpkin cheesecake ice cream. That spicy sweet flavor just sums up the essence of autumn in a mouthful.
So pumpkin oatmeal raisin cookies? Well, that’s just what happens when someone who loves pumpkin decides to make cookies in September. It was inevitable. And inevitably delicious.
These are pretty traditional oatmeal cookies with a twist of pumpkin and a dash of warming spices that bring to mind autumn leaves, harvest time and golden memories. And forget those fake scented candles. These cookies will make your kitchen smell divine.

- 3/4 cup butter, softened (you can use coconut oil instead)
