These are pretty good cookies, but I think the instructions should be changed a little. Instead of stirring in the flour mixture after the chocolate chips and nuts are added, I would blend it in after the eggs and pumpkin, and then stir in the chips and nuts. This made a dense but sticky dough. The cookies are puffy and have excellent flavor. I used Hersheys pieces instead of plain chips. Thanks for posting!
These are so yummy! I also used all chocolate chips instead of nuts. I also made with 1/2 whole wheat flour and butter instead of margarine. The cookies were so soft. I scooped all of the dough out with a cookie scoop and froze most. Thank you for sharing!
These were pretty good! Warning, it makes a LOT!! Even with doing a half a batch, I ended up with a ton leftover (though the people at work have liked that, since I brought the rest in there!). Used all chocolate chips, and omitted the nuts (personal preference).
Tagged in 123. This made 150, using my small Pampered Chef cookie scoop. They don't spread out, so I could get more in a pan. I used freshly ground soft wheat, Sucanat, 8 oz Ghir. bittersweet chips and no nuts. If I had used the full amount of chips (missed the 12 oz), it would have made more. My kids loved the dough. I had to bake 16-17 minutes to get them firm enough. Maybe if I used more flour (you're supposed to add an addt'l 1/4 C per cup of white flour) they would be firmer. Tasted great. My DH is taking some to work for co-workers.
These are so good, I had to slap myself on the hand from just not eating the dough first :) Once I put the ingredients together, and popped into the oven, the aromatics of the pumpkin, chocolate chips and cookies baking, could of knocked me over with delight I had to resist wanting to grab them out of the oven before being done. I used Smart Balance buttery sticks, and E-Ner-G egg replacer as I wanted these to be also eaten by my vegan son. (Ghirardelli sells a great semi-sweet chocolate chip(s) that are vegan. I had chopped walnuts from our walnut tree and these were beyond fabulous! I iced these with some Vanilla icing, that I colored orange. How great are these?? Well a *MUST* try for all. Update: I made some orange frosting (white +2 drops red food coloring + 4 drops of yellow) and did a basic icing/decorating with mini chocolate chips) for Halloween. Absolutely splendid weekend! Thanks for posting these, weekend! Made for *Potluck* Tag Game. Fall 2008.
