Ms. Nancy's Great Pumpkin Cookie

Ms. Nancy is a mystery to us. First we saw a broomstick parked next to the kitchen door, and as much as we tried to move it, it wouldn't budge. Next, as we turned around, there was a whimsical, quizzical, curious and just a tad unconventional incredible woman who baked us some of the most delicious pumpkin cookies ever. She then hopped on a broom and was gone in a flash.



4 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats, uncooked
1 and a half cups butter, softened
2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 (16 oz.) can pumpkin
1-cup semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2-teaspoon baking soda
1 egg
2 teaspoons baking soda
1-teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour, oats, soda, cinnamon and salt; set aside. Cream butter; gradually add sugars, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla, mix well. Alternate additions of dry ingredients and pumpkin, mixing well after each addition. Stir in morsels. For each cookie, drop one-quarter cup dough onto lightly greased cookie sheet; spread into pumpkin shape using a thin metal spatula. Add a bit more dough to form stem. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes, until cookies are firm and lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets; cool on racks. About 36 cookies.
