These are teriffic! I made the recipe as posted with no changes. They're soft, and the taste is very nice, spicy, pumpkiny (is that a word?) Anyway the taste is very good! And we liked the raisins. I will definitely make these again. Thanks Sue L!!
We liked these cookies. A cakey cookie, nicely spiced with the pumpkin in the background. The only change I made was that I only have 14 oz tins of pumpkin and I'm too frugal (!) to waste 2 oz so I put in the whole can. Thanks Sue!
Thanks for this great recipe! I decreased the sugar by 1/4 c., substituted 1c. of the flour with whole wheat flour and omitted the raisins. I used 1,5c. chopped hazelnuts. my husband and my grandma really loved it! this one's a keeper!
