"Pumpkin Perfect" Oatmeal Cookies
These pumpkin oatmeal cookies are chewy in texture, golden in color and easily made with a convenience cookie mix, substituting the butter with pumpkin and a touch of oil. The pumpkin helps to reduce the fat and cholesterol in this recipe. It also works to maintain the moistness, while creating an attractive and deliciously sweet treat.
