Pumpkin Cookies

I LOVE my mom's pumpkin cookies. Or are they Grandma's cookies, Mom? Either way, they are delicious and I love making them during this time of year. The recipe makes a ton, but it is easily halved or quartered if you don't want so many.

These cookies are very fluffy and cake like. The recipe calls for raisins and walnuts, but you could omit either (or both) if you wanted. I usually just make them with raisins, but in light of my current obsession with craisins, I added craisins and white chocolate to half. Man were those GOOD!!!

Pumpkin Cookies

4 cups brown sugar

6 eggs

2 cups oil

4 cups pumpkin

1 TBSP + 1 tsp vanilla

6 cups flour

2 tsp salt

2 tsp cinnamon

1 TBSP + 1 tsp baking soda

2 cups raisins

1 cup walnuts

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix brown sugar, eggs, oil, pumpkin, and vanilla. In a seperate bowl, mix flour, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda. Combine wet and dry ingredients; fold in raisins and walnuts. Batter will be thin.

Spoon onto greased cookie sheet at bake for 15 minutes.
