Yummy! Made as directed using canned organic butternut squash puree but omitted the nuts. I had planned on adding a simple browned butter frosting, but my family started picking off the cookies right out of the oven. Soft, cakey cookie with great flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

I gave this recipe 4 stars. My 6 yr newphew who hates squash and I really liked these cookies. I had some squash leftover from Recipe #324166 and needed to use it up. So I searched and found this recipe. When I made this recipe I doubled the recipe. First let me recommend that if your gonna double this recipe use a Kitchen Aid mixer as I burned up my Sunbeam hand mixer by doubling the recipe. I used Splenda for the sugar and Splenda brown sugar for the brown sugar. I used golden raisins as I think they are best for recipes like this one. I didn't have pecans so I used walnuts and only used 1 cup per batch. I cut back on the baking powder I only used 1 tsp per batch. Also when I made this recipe I added protein powder. These cookies turned out great! So soft and moist. Overall I will make these again for sure. Thanks for posting a great recipe! Christine (internetnut)
