i'm making these for an end-of-soccer-season party for my 6 year old, so i skipped the nuts. Sorta cheated with Libby's Pumpkin Pie pumpkin mix. Came out really soft and moist. Personally, I think the nuts do not complement the velvety texture of this recipe. I added 2 tsp grated ginger to give it an extra kick; it really works.
Very flavorful and moist! I used whole wheat pastry flour. Also used brown sugar, but subbed Splenda for granulated sugar, and egg whites for eggs. Worked fine! Made for Fall 2008 PAC.
