This was a really good cookie. After reading the last review I was actually expecting a cake like cookie, but it wasnt that at all, which is fine. My door is open to all kinds of cookies. ;) I followed it to a T, and was a little suprised because I am a pumpkin feind, but couldnt taste the pumpkin in it, but, of course, my hubby totally could! LOL No matter, we LOVED the cookie, and I will be making these again.
I think there were a few problems with this recipe, namely the large amount of baking powder and soda--the cookies came out tasting of the rising ingredients unfortunately. Also, I didn't really feel the pumpkin came through well, and the cookies were too fluffy, kind of like muffin tops. Perhaps tweaked a bit this recipe would work better.
Just like Moms. I've been eating these since I was a kid.
