brown sugar, firmly packed
( not pumpkin pie filling)
Pre heat oven to 350.
Combine flour, oats, soda, cinnamon,and salt and set aside.
Cream butter and gradually add sugars, beating until fluffy. Add egg and vanilla.
Alternate mixing dry ingredients, wet ingredients and pumpkin, mixing well after each addition.
Stir in chocolate chips and raisins.
Place a heaping tablespoon for each pumpkin cookie onto the slightly greased cookie sheet. (Some creative people even add a stem to the top of each pumpkin)
Bake at 350 until cookies are firm and lightly browned (I usually bake on the middle rack for about 12 minutes or so, and then I move them to the top rack for about 2 or more minutes to give them that golden brown top.).
Place cookies onto a rack or wax paper to cool.
Place one candy corn on top of each cookie while the cookies are still warm.
