102 - Pumpkin Cookies

(by Grace Rosenblum - friend)

2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. salt
1 cup white sugar
1 cup Parkay margarine (2 sticks)
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 egg
1 cup dates OR raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp. vanilla

If you're using raisins, put them in a saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil and cook for five minutes, then drain. In a bowl, sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside. In a mixer, combine sugar, Parkay, and egg. Beat until smooth. Add pumpkin, then slowly add the flour/baking powder/baking soda/cinnamon/salt mixture. Add vanilla. Add cooked raisins OR dates. Add nuts. Mix until smooth. Drop teaspoonsful on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
