pumpkin cookies

'Tis the season for pumpkin recipes! These are very moist and soft cookies. I sort of added this and that together, and it turned out very nicely! They have passed the taste test for even those who don't like pumpkin (myself included!)

I grind the walnuts and raisins because my son doesn't like big chunks of stuff in his cookies, so you still get the benefit of the ingredients and a nice added texture without "lumps"!

Pumpkin Cookies

1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ginger
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. allspice
3 Tbsp. applesauce
1/2 cup pumpkin
3/4 tsp. vanilla
4 Tbsp. margarine
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet.

In a food processor, grind together the walnuts and raisins until ground, approx. 15 seconds on high. Set aside. In a bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Add walnut/raisin mixture and combine. Add wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Drop dough by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes.
