These moist pumpkin cookies are like having a bite-size portion of pumpkin pie. They taste great with a dab of whipped cream on top. These cookies may be addicting! They are great warm or cool. I have received many requests to bring these to parties and meetings.

These are those cookies that are similar to cake. Definitely reminds me of pumpkin pie! I used a whole 15 oz. can of pumpkin and butter in place of shortening. They are addicting little cookies! I can imagine how extra yummy they would be having cool whip! Read More

Unfortunately we did not enjoy these. I threw the remainder of the batter away after baking the 1st batch. Wierd flavor and texture. Read More

I doubled the recipe and made some changes. I used about a third a cup of shortening and 2/3 butter since I didn't have enough shortening. Also did a cup each of white and brown sugar just because I prefer brown sugar. Also added mini white chocolate chips. Cookies were a bit doughy but I dont like hard cookies so I thought they were great! Would definitely make again Read More
