1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla

2 1/2 cups oats
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

add these to wet ingredients , then fold in 2 cups chocolate chips and 1 cup chopped nuts.
Use large Tablespoon to place on cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.

Pumpkin Cake


 Mix in beater:

3 eggs, beaten

1 large can evaporated milk

2 tsp pumpkin spice

1 cup sugar

½ tsp salt

1 large can pumpkin

½ box yellow or white cake mix


Spread this mixture in greased (or Pam’d) 9 x 13” pan…  then

Sprinkle on top:

Remaining ½ box cake mix

1 cube butter, diced in chunks

1 cup nuts

 Bake @ 350 degrees for 45-55 minutes (knife should come out clean… like pumpkin pie).  This is a great substitute for pumpkin pie…  Very easy and can be made the day ahead (refrigerated)….. serve with whipping cream or ice cream.
