Spiced Pumpkin Raisin Cookies

Added to Recipes on Mon 10/07/2013

Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour

2/3 cup old-fashioned oats

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp fine salt

1/4 tsp ground allspice

3/4 cup raw sugar

1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 tbsp pure maple syrup

1 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup raisins

Dash of flaxseed

 

Directions

Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350°F. Line 2 heavy large baking sheets with parchment paper.

 

In a medium bowl, combine the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, salt and allspice. Stir to blend well. In a large bowl, combine the sugar, pumpkin puree, oil, syrup and vanilla; whisk to blend. Using a flexible rubber spatula, gradually stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture. Stir in the raisins.

 

For each cookie, drop 1 generous tablespoon of batter onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing the mounds about 1 inch apart (or use a mini ice cream scoop). Using moistened fingertips, flatten each to a 2-inch-diameter round. Sprinkle each cookie with a bit more raw sugar.

 

Bake the cookies until brown and a bit firm to the touch, 17 to 20 minutes. Using a metal spatula, transfer the cookies to a rack and cool completely.
