We have a Mrs. Field's cookie book that I love to try new recipes out of. I found pumpkin on sale and I had been itching to try this recipe, so I made it. They are a tasty little cookie, good with Chai tea! Enjoy!

The butter content in this recipe is WRONG! I make this every year and it should be 3/4 cup of softened butter.

I follow this recipe and didn't make any changes. It was a very dry cookie. After one batch I decided to put the rest of it in a loaf pan. It was an ok bread but a very dry cookie. I checked the ratings before I made this recipe and saw she had changed the butter amount so I thought it would be ok. I was wrong.

What wonderful flavor these cookies have -- and they are very easy to make. I used my cookie scoop and I think it's more like 2 tablespoons. I got 36 cookies. I saw where one reviewer suggested adding more butter and I made a note to myself to do that -- but wouldn't ya know, once I got into the recipe, I forgot to check my notes!!!! I agree that the cookies might be slightly on the dry side -- but I hesitate to add that much additional butter because I like how the cookie holds its shape when placed on the pan -- it's still basically that shape when it's done baking. I might add an extra 2 T. of butter, but I would be fearful in adding an entire 1/2 cup more. I also found that in my oven they baked in 17 minutes. Very delicious cookies.
