Pumpkin Cookies

All year long I crave pumpkin foods. But I tend to be alone in that so I don't indulge. This time of year, everyone else wants them to so I am free to indulge to my hearts content.

Here is one of my favorite - Pumpkin Cookies

Ingredients

* 1 cup sugar
* 1 cup pumpkin puree

* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
* 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1 cup raisins
* 1/2 cup finely chopped nuts

Directions

Add applesauce, sugar pumpkin, egg and vanilla; beat well.
Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg.
