Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

Have I told you lately how much I love baking during the Fall? Not since yesterday, right? Let me tell you again…I LOVE to bake…especially during the Fall! Now, don’t get me wrong, baking during Christmas has a place in my heart too, but with all the hustle and bustle of shopping, wrapping and decorating, baking seems to take a back seat during the Christmas season, at least in our house.

October 29th is National Oatmeal Day…did you know? I didn’t.

While I love a bowl of piping hot oatmeal with raisins and cinnamon in the morning, I really love Oatmeal Cookies! And when you add Pumpkin, Raisins and Walnuts…oh my! I could eat the whole batch!

Pretty much all the delicious flavors of Fall wrapped up in a sweet, little, soft cookie! I had to share a big bag of these cookies with the neighbor today so I wouldn’t eat them all.

Don’t they look delicious? Hang tight for the recipe…first I have a favor…pop on over to the Quaker® website and vote for my Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies! I would REALLY appreciate it, but even better…I’d LOVE it if you won! Yep…you could win $1000 just for voting!
