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.

Yum! Made these from a leftover can of pumpkin and couldn't be more pleased! Not to sweet. Great with semi-sweet chocolate chips. I added a little more flour than called for and next time I will use a little less nutmeg. Thanks!

I made these for a friend who loves pumpkin. After reading the reviews, I upped the pumpkin to 1 1/2 cups (made a very moist cookie), and used 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon & nutmeg. I baked for 12 minutes but am thinking 11 min would have been better. And I didn't use raisins or nuts. Thanks for sharing!

These are super-delicious (and soft!) cookies. My kids ate so many of them. I didn't use chocolate chips, though -- just raisins. These will definitely be made again and again in this house.

These are delicious cookies. I had to add 6 minutes to the baking time. They weren't quite as bright and pumpkiny as I was hoping, I'm trying to find something similar to cookies I got at a bakery in College. Oddly enough, I thought they tasted much better when cold the next day.

These are really good. I made them for the DH's poker night and they vanished. I did have to add 10 minutes to the baking time, so watch them closely. The time will vary depending on your oven.

Only a 4 because they just aren't pretty cookies. They definitely are ADDICTIVE, though, and I am not usually one for sweets! I made the recipe exactly as directed (they ARE a bit sticky, can't imagine putting them through a press, although I don't have one...) and I did add the chips and nuts. YUM! Thanks so much, Ellie! :-)

These cookies were great! I even used real pumpkin from our garden. I used two full cups of it (cooked and pureed) as oppose to one can from the store. Very light and fluffy cookies. I will definitely be making these again.
