I put these out at a gathering and came home with almost a full plate. The filling needs a little something something, but I don't know what it is yet. I will try these again and see if any changes help.
Made for an upcoming Harry Potter party! DD loved them. I used pie crust dough to reduce the sugar. Allysundrop, I don't think it was your choc chip dough that cause them not to set up. On the can of pumpkin pie mix is a recipe for pie. Follow that next time. The eggs in the recipe will help set the pumpkin up like a custard. There will be leftovers however. I used mine in and an extra pie crust to make a thin tart. Everyone loved that!
I baked at a lower temp so I could cook them longer. Plus I added eggs and condensed milk to the can of pumpkin pie, per the can directions (2 eggs & 2/3 cup to 30 oz filling) which yielded a bit more. Cut the cookie dough no more than about a centimeter thick, roll flat, then press in, but not over the top so they won't burn after they rise up and out. No spice was needed, did sugar the tops though! Yummy.
I used pumpkin pie filling with all the spices, so they tasted excellent. However, I could not get them solid. I cooked them forever and they still fell apart. I used chocolate chip cookie dough instead of sugar because I love the chocolate and pumpkin flavors together, but maybe that's where it went wrong. Despite all this, they were very very yummy and a big hit at my Harry Potter book club.

These are awesome. I made these for an art opening just before Christmas. Everyone loved them. The only bad point I would have to say is that they seemed time consuming to make. Other than that they rock!
