Delicious. What a great way to use pumpkin. I made a couple of subs. First off, I used old fashioned oats. I wanted my cookies to be puffy so I used butter flavored shortening and 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder instead of the 1 teaspoon baking soda. I baked them for 17 minutes. Pumpkin, oats and chocolate, that makes it health food, right?
