These cookies are so good, and they taste a little bit like pumpkin pie. They have a cake-like texture, but they are moist. I make them for my mother-in-law, primarily, because she is diabetic, and she adores them. We live at high altitude (6,800-ish ft.), and they work fine. *Note*: Do not flatten them before putting them in the oven. They do not change shape (flatten) themselves, but I think that helps them keep their moisture when they're stored.
