Recipe-Quaker Oatmeal cookie recipe from the 60’s

How do you like your oatmeal?   I like mine in a cookie.  Te he he.  Where did that recipe disappear to?  Oh well.  Here’s another oatmeal cookie recipe that sounds even better.

Yum, pumpkin-pie spice will be nice in a home baked cookie for fall, since back -to school time is right around the corner.

Celestial Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1  cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) 70% vegetable oil spread
  • 1  cup canned pumpkin
  • 2  egg whites OR 1 egg
  • 1  teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 2  cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old-fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1  cup all-purpose flour
  • 1  teaspoon pumpkin pie spice OR ground cinnamon
  • 1/2  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2  teaspoon salt
  • 1/2  cup finely chopped, pitted prunes
  • 1/4  cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 1/2  cup powdered sugar
  • 1  tablespoon orange juice

Heat oven to 350°. Lightly spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. In large bowl, beat sugar, and vegetable oil spread with electric mixer until well blended. Add pumpkin, egg whites and orange peel; beat well. (Mixture will look curdled.) Add combined oats, flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt; mix well. Stir in prunes and walnuts. Drop dough by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls about 2″ apart on cookie sheets. Bake 11 to 13 minutes or until lightly browned. (Do not overbake). Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire racks. Cool completely. For glaze, combine powdered sugar and orange juice in small bowl; mix well. Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies. Let stand until glaze sets. Store tightly covered.
