This is a variation on a breakfast cookie from Jennifer at Allrecipes.com. I made these up as I have tons of pumpkin and I love pumpkin anything, try these they are nice and soft and spicy.

I'm pleasantly surprised at how easy and tasty these are.

~easy and fast to make
~Would make a decent cookie-in-a-jar gift
~On hand ingredients
~Easy to adapt to new/other ingredients
~Gets kids to eat pumpkin!

~I had to bake for a couple extra minutes
~dough was very dry, I added an extra 1/4 cup pumpkin

What I changed:
I know, I know, you're supposed to make recipe as written the first time, but why make my own mistakes when I can learn from previously written reviews? :-)
~I replaced 2 T flax seed for 2 T flour, for extra fiber
~Instead of pumpkin pie spice I did 1 part cloves, 2 parts ginger, and 4 parts cinnamon to equal about a heaping teaspoon. Next time, however, I plan to do 1/4 teaspoon cloves, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon to make it extra spicy.
~I used 1 cup pumpkin puree instead of the 6 tablespoons applesause and 6 tablespoons pumpkin. Applesause is more wet, which is why I need to add extra moisture.
~I used one whole egg instead of two egg whites.
