These were super good! I have made a lot of pumpkin cookie recipes and this is by far the best. I used oil instead of magarine and didn't use whole wheat flour. These are a soft cake like cookie and i piped the dough out of a bag with a star tip and sprinkled with turbinado sugar. yum!

Nice cookie for Halloween for an allergy kiddo. I added seasonal sprinkles to the top and cut down on the sugar. I used the unsweetened applesauce instead of butter and added a splash of oil. I also used pumpkin pie spice and gluten free flour. Next time I may throw in some chocolate chips. Good, adaptable recipe with a yummy texture.

SO GOOD! I expected the cookies to be soft but they were SUPER soft - literally a banana bread texture. My sister said they were like the tops of muffins - which is great 'cuz that's everybody's favourite part! I will definitely be making them again as they were a hit.
