My mother used to make the chocolate version for us when we were younger. I love anything made with pumpkin so I couldn't wait to try this out. They were so good and dissapeared quickly. The filling was a little sweet and there didn't seem to be enough to fill all of the cookies, but it worked out anyhow because the cookies are delicous by themselves. Thanks for another great way to have something pumpkin!
