Wonderfully tasty! I actually used pumpkin butter and craisins (sweetened dried cranberries) and these were definitely pop into your mouth good. The crunch of pecans was a lovely addition. Next I want to try these using my sweet potato butter!

Made these based on all the good reviews and was very disappointed. Made half with raisins and half without as hubby won't eat raisins. Cookies have an odd taste, nothing I would rave about. I wound up throwing them out because no one would eat them.

I love these! They are a very light cookie...the perfect dessert that won't weigh you down! I left out the raisins, and made my cookies I only got half the amount the recipe called for. Next time, I think I will add an extra teaspoon of cinnamon and use brown sugar! YUMMM!
