Ingredients

1 cup sugar
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup fat-free milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 (2 1/2-ounce) jars baby food prunes
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
3 cups quick-cooking oats, uncooked
1 cup raisins or dried cranberries
Vegetable cooking spray

Preparation

Combine first 7 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring well with a wire whisk. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients; add to sugar mixture, stirring just until blended. Stir in oats and raisins.

For each cookie, pack dough into a 1/4-cup measure. Drop dough, 3 inches apart, onto cookie sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 16 to 18 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on cookie sheets 1 minute. Remove from cookie sheets, and let cool completely on wire racks. (Cookies will be soft.) Store in an airtight container.

Note:

Mix the dough for these cookies, then cover and store it in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. If you prefer smaller cookies, drop the dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets, and bake for 10 to 12 minutes.
