Tasty (Try It) Tuesday - Pumpkin Spiced Oatmeal Cookies

I amended my usual Tasty Tuesday title to include "Try It" this week because it's a recipe I hadn't tried before. With the recent drop in temperatures here in upstate NY, and the arrival of fall this week, I wanted to make a recipe that has pumpkin in it. I also chose it because Tom is an avid fan of oatmeal cookies.

These were super easy to make and the batter was great to work with too. If you have a spring-loaded portion scoop, I'd suggest using it. This way you get uniformly shaped cookies and also a better yield than if you eyeball the measurement. This what the cookies look like before going into the oven:

And here they are, fresh out of oven:

One minor change I made was to use sliced almonds because I didn't have pecans. These would be equally tasty with walnuts or pecans though. Take a look at Skinnytaste.com for the recipe. Enjoy!
