Sorta Healthy Semi-Homemade Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

First, as much as I love my fellow Oklahoman, Pioneer Woman, I will NOT be posting step-by-step pictures of the "making of the recipe."  If you can't follow this recipe, no amount of pictures will help you.  Just sayin'.  BTW, this recipe came from my head, using ingredients I had on hand.

You will need:

Oatmeal Cookie Mix (17.5 oz)
1 egg or 1/4 cup egg substitute
1 cup craisins (dried, sweetened cranberries)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (I use canned)
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tbsp water

Have everything at room temperature before you begin mixing.  Using pumpkin puree instead of butter decreases fat (and calories).

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  

Mix spice, craisins and cookie mix together until craisins are well covered with cookie mix and spice. Thoroughly mix water, pumpkin and egg (or egg substitute) together, then add to dry ingredients.  Mix all ingredients until well-moistened and drop by teaspoonfuls onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Bake until golden brown, about 10-12 minutes.  They don't flatten out because there is no butter and they are very tender and cake-like on the inside.  Let cool on cooling rack.  Should make about 36-40 small cookies.
