 PUMPKIN OATMEAL COOKIES
 (This is really just a standard oatmeal cookie recipe, with half as
 much sugar and pumpkin substituted for the butter.  I made it for an
 office meeting last summer substituting applesauce for the butter, and
 nobody noticed that they weren't ordinary, high-fat oatmeal cookies.)
 
 1 cup canned or cooked pumpkin
 1 cup brown sugar
 Egg replacer for 2 eggs (I used Eggbeaters, but one could try a vegan
   substitute instead)
 1 1/2 cups flour
 1 teaspoon baking soda
 1 teaspoon cinnamon
 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
 1/2 teaspoon cloves
 3 cups oatmeal
 1 cup raisins
 
 Thoroughly mix pumpkin and brown sugar; then beat in egg substitute.
 Gradually mix in flour, soda, and spices, then mix in oatmeal and raisins.
 Drop by spoonfuls on non-stick or oil-sprayed cookie sheets.  Bake at
 350 degrees for 10-20 minutes.  Makes 4-5 dozen.
