Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

I had some pumpkin puree in the freezer needing attention.  These cookies were a good use!  My husband said they tasted like a muffin disguised as a cookie.  You could try adding raisins or white chocolate chips to change it up, too.

adapted from this recipe

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cups sugar
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup cold butter
1 egg, beaten
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 3/4 cup rolled oats
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  Cut in butter and mix until mixture is crumbly.  Stir in egg, pumpkin, oats, and nuts.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet. 

Bake in 400 degree oven for 15 minutes or until done.
