  • 1

    tsp (5 ml) salt

  • ½

    tsp (2 ml) baking soda

  • ½

    cup (125 ml) packed brown sugar

  • ¾

    cup (180 ml) butter

  • 1

    egg

  • ¼

    cup (60 ml) molasses

  • 1

    cup (250 ml) rolled oats

  • Pumpkin Filling:

  • 1

    cup (250 ml) cooked or canned pumpkin

  • ½

    cup (125 ml) sugar

  • ½

    tsp (2 ml) cinnamon

  • ½

    tsp (2 ml) ground ginger

  • ¼

Directions

For Pumpkin Filling: Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. For cookies: Blend the flour, salt, and baking soda in a mixing bowl. Add the brown sugar, butter, egg, and molasses, blending until smooth. Stir in the rolled oats. Roll to a thickness of 1/8 inch (3 mm) on a lightly floured surface and cut into 2 1/2-inch (6 cm) rounds. Place half the rounds on ungreased baking sheets and top each with about 1 tsp (5 ml) filling. Cut a cross or small circle in the center of the remaining rounds and place over the filling-topped rounds. Seal the edges and bake in a preheated 375F (190C) for 12 to 15 minutes. Makes 2 dozen cookies.
