Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies...

This cookie is delicious! I found it on Facebook and just had to try it. It turns out to be a keeper. Everyone that has eaten one has said they thought they were nummy! They are moist and chewy, not too much pumpkin flavor and the cinnamon sugar on top just adds the right touch. Enjoy! Check out Oh So Shabby by Debbie Reynolds and see all the beautiful things and ideas that she has.

Hmmm.... guess I will need to try these! I love baking cookies but seldom do it on a regular basis any more. When my kids were at boarding school I would make a double batch every weekend to get them through the week! This sounds like a nice treat for fall.
