    Impera_Magna's Note:

    My sister Carol has made these for her boys since they were little and both they and their friends loved them. Now the boys are in college, they just "have to have" them every Halloween.... so Carol sends them care packages. (Number of cookies is estimate)

      My substitutions were: unsalted butter instead of margarine, 2 small eggs instead of 1 egg and butterscotch chips instead of chocolate chips. I also cooked and mashed half a small pumpkin (about 16 oz. raw) instead of using canned pumpkin. I didn't shape or decorate the cookies. I cooked them for 15 minutes at 180C which resulted in very soft cookies (the way I like them!). The butterscotch chips were a bit too sweet so I think the chocolate chips called for would be better. I think I will try these again with a greater proportion of oatmeal and with some additional spices - maybe cloves or allspice?

      I made these with Crisco (as noted as an option) to make them dairy-free. Unfortunately, I think that made them rather tasteless. I made some with choc chips, some plain, and some with craisins. The craisin ones are my favorites. The plain ones are just bland, so I wouldn't suggest that! Even with butter or margarine I don't think these would be a favorite here, not without some tweaking of seasoning at least.

      These are soooooooo good. I've always loved pumpkin bread and I was looking for an oatmeal and pumking recipe. I did'nt have enough flour so I made a half batch which was plenty for just me and my husband. I even made half w/ chocolate chips and half w/o. I actually like the ones w/o better!
