I made these cookies (minus the walnuts) and my roommates all thought they were simply the best. Read More

I thought that these cookies were kind of bland even after I added cinnamon and nutmeg. I also put chocolate sprinkles on the tops. The cookies were kind of chewy not a good chewy but a tough chewy. I won't make these again. It would be a better use of my pumpkin to make bread or pie. Read More

These cookies are soft and cake-like. I added raisins instead of walnuts but if you added both it might add more flavor to the cookie. They were on the milder side instead of a spicy pumpkin cookie. Read More

Not tasty at all. Very disappointing. My daughter & I had more fun gathering the ingredients & mixing than the outcome. Doughy-yet chewy. Bland-yet combined correctly. We will look for other recipes to try. Read More

this recipe is good for a healthy treat but the texture is more cake/muffin like than like a cookie. If you are looking for a "real" cookie you will be dissapointed with this recipe. I am sort of a health nut so I like them but I am not sure many other people would. They are very low in saturated fat though and the taste is pretty good so I will probably make them again-I just wouldn't take them to any parties or anything. Read More

Yuck! Added 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and 1/4 tsp. cinnamon so the flavor of the dough was all right. However these were gross. Once baked these "cookies" develop a rubbery outside and doughy unpleasant inside. Read More

These cookies don't seem to spread out much at all. They stayed in the same shape that the batter was when it went into the oven. And the taste is bland without adding cinnamon or nutmeg on your own. I was disappointed. Read More

not very impressive too soft and muffin- like. Would've been better if they were a little thinner. Read More
