Loved it! It has a subtle pumpkin taste. Had made cut outs with these and once rolled you have to be very quick with the cut outs because the dough soften really fast and it can get sticky. I also mixed flour and and a little bit of confectioner to the board/counter. Read More

I really enjoyed these! I changed a few things- I added extra cinnamon and an extra egg yolk. I also baked them at 185C for 10 mins. The dough was too gooey to be rolled out like traditional sugar cookies so I rolled the dough into balls and pressed them with a cup so they looked like discs. Not a super sweet cookie so definitely benefitted from frosting! But they are fluffy and soft and very tasty. Will make again! Read More

These were pretty good although I think I need to do some tweaking. I always use fresh pumpkin vs canned which in turn may have made the dough too soft. They just didn't get quite right. The taste is really good so I'm sure I can figure it out! Read More

This was truly a great recipe! I followed all of the directions except I added an additional cup of flour to compensate for the extra stickiness. It worked wonders. Also be sure to flour your rolling surface hands rolling pin and the dough...it helps greatly! My kids love them and so do I:) Read More

I made these. I was worried about the reviews saying they were sticky but figured I would try it out. I ran out of white flour but had some whole wheat flour. so I did half white and half whole wheat. I refrigerated the cookies for 2 hours and they rolled out perfectly. I did work fast bc the dough does warm up and gets soft. The cookies aren't overly sweet which is great for a cookie that should have frosting on it! I made home made cream cheese frosting. Overall I was really happy with this recipe. Read More

Had a 1/2 can of pumpkin to use up so decided to use this recipe. They turned out so well and yummy. Used my convection oven in RV for first time and they turned out perfect...soft on inside little crisp on edges. Light pumpkin flavor. Read More

These cookies have more sugar than I care to eat but the concept is lovely. Next time I will be using less sugar and more pumpkin as the flavor should be more intense. I baked these at 300 degrees for about fifteen to twenty minutes for a more moist and light golden appearance. Read More
