they are best fresh - even a half of a day later they loose any of that baked crunchy outside and become uniformly soft. but, when you have that in mind, they are delicious. i can taste the pumpkin. i might alter it to have more spices.

Wow these were delicious! And the batter was really really good too - almost better than the cookies :) I used Libby's pumpkin pie mix so I didn't include the spices because it was already spiced. Worked out perfectly!

Yum! I made these for a church bake sale. They are easy to put together, and I always have these ingredients on hand. They are wonderful fresh from the oven, but they taste great once they've cooled too. I followed the recipe exactly (except I halved the nutmeg b/c I don't like it so strong) and did not use nuts or raisins. I used a 2 oz coffee scoop to form my cookies and they were perfectly cooked in 14 minutes. The only issue I have is that it doesnt taste as pumpkin-y as I'd hoped, so I'll probably add another 1/2 c of pumpkin next time and see if that flavor can come through a little more. Thanks for the recipe tho, I'm sure they'll be a big hit at the bake sale.
