These are very good. Super moist and light. I bumped up the spices a little, using 1/2 t. pumpkin pie spice. I made a browned butter frosting and it worked nicely. I also chose to leave the chopped nuts out, and have a smooth cookie, and instead I placed 1 whole pecan half in the center of each newly frosted cookie - very pretty! Thanks Jewelz!

Stop what you're doing right now and make these cookies. Don't change anything, just make them. Texture, flavor and everything else is perfect and the icing works for all kinds of sweet breads (banana, zucchini, etc.) One of those recipes that when you find it, you share with everyone. ;)

Very good! Loved the penuche frosting, and the amount was of frosting was perfect. Next time I might put in 1/2 t of pumpkin pie spice but the cookies were delicious as is. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

These cookies are great! Try adding butterscotch chips to the batter, gives it just the right touch! YUUUMMM!!!!

These are so good! I made mine with SmartBlend 50% butter blend, substituted 1/2 cup of the flour with whole wheat flour, skipped the nuts. They came out great. I substituted the half and half for vanilla soymilk (I know it sounds weird, but you do what you have to!) and made more of a glaze than a frosting. Still good though. I agree with one of the other comments that more maple in the frosting would have been good. Still, this is yummy enough to rate five stars! Thanks for sharing!

Everyone dipped into these and they were so good! I loved the frosting! These went great with my Halloween theme. I just added a little orange food coloring to the frosting!

I really enjoyed these cookies. They were very moist and cake like. The only changes that I believe these cookies could use are...at least 1 Tbs of cin and 1/2 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. I would also add extra maple to the frosting. They were really easy to make and everyone loved eating them.

Very good cookies! Mine didn't turn out as evenly shaped as the photo by Forgiven but I used 2 teaspoons to drop them instead of a scoop. Wonderful pumpkin flavour, very light texture and fantastic frosting. Thanks, jewelz4jesus (and Nanny).
