Image of Spiced Pumpkin-Raisin Cookies


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 3/4 cup raw sugar (plus additional for sprinkling)
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup raisins


  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Line 2 heavy large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the flour, oats, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and allspice. Stir to blend well. In a large bowl combine the sugar, pumpkin puree, oil, syrup and vanilla, whisk to blend. Using a flexible rubber spatula, gradually stir the dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture. Stir in raisins.
  3. For each cookie, drop 1 generous tablespoon batter onto the prepared sheet, spacing the mounds about 1 inch apart. (Or use a mini ice cream scoop.) Using moistened fingertips, flatten each to a 2-inch-diameter round. Sprinkle each cookie with a bit more raw sugar.
  4. Bake the cookies until brown and a bit firm to the touch, 17 to 20 minutes. Using a metal spatula, transfer the cookies to a rack and cool completely.

    This is the rare Giada recipe that I don't find outstanding. It's good. But not great. The flavor was good… could have benefited from more spice, possibly even a touch of clove. But the texture was a little too cakey for my family. I likely will not make this one again.
