These are great pumpkin cookies!! I used a pumpkin cookie cutter to help me form them into pumpkins otherwise I'm pretty sure mine would have turned out looking like little blobs ;) I used cooking spray to keep the cookies from sticking to the cutter. The only changes I made were to minus the chocolate chips and use an entire can of pumpkin (15 oz.)--they were a little sticky, but they baked up great!!

I followed the recipe exactly, but mine turned out flat as pancakes and I had to scrape them off the cookie sheet with a sharp spatula. I don't live in a humid place, but maybe I still should have added more flour. Anyway, they tasted really good but they were a disaster to look at.

Wow, my pastry for pumpkin pies would've taken a lot longer, so with this recipe for THE GREAT PUMPKIN COOKIE I was able to pretty quickly mix up the ingredients with the cup of canned pumpkin poured right on top of the whole everything. Then, just blending in a little at a time, I was able to get the mix together all in short sequence.
My cup for measurements was all pumpkin'd up so I had to take a guess on how much was a cup of chocolate chips... oops, I must have dumped in more than what was called for, what ashame -- boohoohoo!
Good cookie with nice texture especially them rascally chocolate chips!

These are excellent pumpkin cookies. I have made them for years. I got this exact recipe from a Libby's ad in one of the magazines in the 1980's and have made them every year since. My kids just loved them..they (and I) still do now as grownups! These are must have cookies for fall.

Very good cookies ! The kids loved them. I made a couple of changes: 1 cup white flour and 1 whole wheat flour; half a cup brown sugar and half a cup brown sugar twin; I did not put the white sugar. I droped 1 tablespoon dough on the cookie sheet and baked for 12-15 minutes. Thank you for that wonderful recipe.

Oh Wow! I just ate the first cookie straight out of the oven and I am so impressed!! I have tried quite a few pumpkin cookies--all of which have come out with a weird texture (either way too cakey or with an odd rubbery plastic feel to the outside of the cookie). These ones were absolutely perfect, though! I adore the addition of oatmeal. I left out the chocolate chips and used a sugar substitute to replace the granulated sugar. And the most amazing part--they actually have great pumpkin flavor! I'll try some with a little bit of cream cheese icing i have, but I really think I'm going to like them best plain! Thank you for an awesome recipe that I will be making all throughout the year!

I made these for my son's harvest party. I iced them for the party with cream cheese frosting and sprinkls, but I liked them with out frosting as well. They are very good.

This was a delicious cookie and easy to make a little healthier. I cut the sugar (3/4 c each), used 1 cup of wheat flour, and skipped the chocolate chips. Haven't frosted them yet b/c the kids are eating them up before I get a chance.
