Great Pumpkin Cookies
Libby's recipe

2 cups flour
1 cup quick or old fashioned oats, uncooked
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or margarin, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup Libby's solid pack pumpkin
1 cup semi-sweet real chocolate morsels
Variation: Substitute 1 cup raisins for morsels.
       Assorted icing or peanut butter
       Assorted candies, raisins or nuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Cream butter; gradually add sugars, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Alternate additions of dry ingredients and pumpkin, mixing well after each addition. Stir in morsels. For each cookie, drop 1/4 cup dough onto lightly greased cookie sheet; spread into pumpkin shape, using a thin spatula. Add a bit more dough to form a stem.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until cookies are firm and lightly browned. Remove from sheets; cool on racks. Decorated, using icing or peanut butter to affix assorted candies, raisins or nuts.

Yield: 19 to 20 cookies
