- Spoon onto greased cookie sheet bake 10-12 minutes.
These are very moist and tasty! I had some leftover fresh sugar pumpkin that my mom cooked last week and had just enough for this recipe. The pumpkin flavor was not overly strong in the cookies but that could be the difference between fresh and canned, I suppose. I used about 1/4 cup more chocolate and no nuts. I used my cookie scoop to dish these out and ended up with about 45 cookies. Thanks for posting!
