Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are AMAZINGLY YUMMY!! My friend, Jessica Martens, sent the recipe to me and I tried them that day. They were gone in a matter of hours. Definately a keeper and I will bake these a lot during the fall season. Thanks to Jessica for the recipe!
~Recipe~ 2 cups all-purpose flour
 1-1 1/2 quick cooking oats
 1 tsp baking soda
 1 1/2 tsps cinnamon
 1 tsp nutmeg
 1/2 tsp salt
 1 cup butter(softened)
 1 cup brown sugar
 1 cup white sugar
 2 large eggs
 1 tsp vanilla
 1 cup canned pumpkin
 2 cups raisins(optional)**I did not use and I love raisins...they were awesome without**

 Preheat oven to 350; combine the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and both sugars until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla then stir in the pumpkin. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients until well blended. Mix in raisins(optional). Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
3) Bake for 10 -12 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

**I drizzled powdered sugar icing on them to add some sweetness.  I told Jessica I did that and she said she did the same but added a dash of cinnamon in the icing** YUM!
