Nice cookies. Not sure of exact quantity. I do not put in the nuts.

We have tons of pumpkin puree in our freezer, as we grow our own. I prepared this recipe with 1 cup of frozen pumpkin puree, thawed and well-drained (press the moisture out through a strainer and measure after water is removed). Because I had no milk, I used orange juice in place of it for the icing. Delicious! (This recipe review courtesy of the Aussie/Kiwi recipe swap)
