This is a great recipe to use up that 1/2 cup leftover pumpkin. Good flavour too. Made this today and used 1/2 cup Splenda instead of white sugar. Used whole wheat flour instead of white. Used a 1 1/2 in. cookie scoop and made 32 cookies. These are soft cakelike cookies. Raisins or nuts could be added if desired.

this was an okay recipe for me, when I see maple in a recipe I want to taste MAPLE. So with a little tweaking I got the maple flavor I wanted, instead of the brown sugar, I put maple sugar and only put 1/3 cup and put 4 tbsp maple syrup. Other than that, the recipe is one I will be keeping.

Very easy to make. I used Splenda instead of white sugar & didn't have any maple syrup so used golden syrup instead & used about 3/4 cup fresh mashed pumpkin. They were still very sweet so may cut down on the brown sugar a bit next time. Like the last reviewer I just mixed the dry ingredients straight into the wet mix too! My 16 month old daughter thought these were great!
