I haven't had a chance to try the recipe myself yet, but it's on my to do list, that's for sure! Can you think of a more delicious addition to oatmeal raisin cookies then pumpkin? I sure can't! If you beat me to trying this recipe let me know what you think.

  1. I've been on a pumpkin baking frenzy and thought I could stop until I saw this post! I just made these for my boyfriend who's favorite is oatmeal raisin and he can't stop devouring them!

    I substituted pecans for walnuts ... super tasty :) and they are soft, cakey and amazing!

    Thanks for sharing!
