I found this recipe online a couple of years ago and loved it. These cookies are very moist and delicious. They aren't at all "pumpkiny" and not too sweet.

These were very tasty, you could just taste the pumpkin and spice. It's a very delicate flavor that is just a little interesting compared to regular chocolate chip cookies. My kids loved them. I did not make the glaze, they didn't need it.

These cookies are moist, tender & delicious! As a personal preference, I used pecans instead of the walnuts. My problem was with the glaze - it made the cookies soggy and messy. My hubby thought the cookies would be good with a cream cheese frosting while I think they would have been just fine without any glaze or frosting at all.

I just made these cookies and they are so good! Very soft and just the right amount of pumpkin and the chips and nuts are just right! Thanks for posting!
