Top Review by sprue

these are very cake like cookies and very soft! i actually subbed the lard for pumpkin puree and the raisons for chocolate chips and added some cinnamon.. i have to say they are probably the best pumpkin chocolate cookies i've ever had!!! but plain would be good too if you like a very cakey cookie.. i'd still add cinnamon too. very good cookie, thanks
