Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

This is the first of many, many posts that I have never posted. I think I baked these cookies back in September. I got the recipe from a friend who copied it out of a cookbook at Barnes & Noble. So, I don't have an exact source for this recipe.

I made one batch with chocolate chips and another batch with raisins. I preferred the raisins but the chocolate chips went over better with the middle schoolers that my husband teaches. Go figure!
