2 cups oats
1/2 cup butter
2 cups boiling water
5-6 cups whole wheat flour, divided
1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
1 cup non fat milk
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup mashed pumpkin
Preheat the oven to 350
Lightly coat cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix the oats, pumpkin, and butter in a large bowl. Carefully pour in the boiling water.
Stir in 2 cups flour and remaining ingredients.
With a wooden spoon, mix until it forms into a big ball, adding flour as needed to make a stiff dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface, adding flour as needed, until the dough taken on a rollable consistency. In total I used about 5 1/2 cups flour.
Roll out the dough to 3/8 inch thickness. Cut out cookie shapes using your favorite cutters. Place them on the cookie sheets and bake for 25-35 minutes, or until the bottoms are golden brown. Cool completely.
