These were the best pumpkin cookies I've ever had although I wont be making them very often because they have so much sugar, though they are a great holiday-season treat to bring to a party. I used a lot more spices than the recipe called for (1 tablespoon ginger, 1/2 teaspoon ground clove, 2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon allspice, and 2 tablespoons vanilla) and I thought they could still use more flavor. I used white whole wheat for all the flour. The cookies were also extremely moist and didn't quite have the normal consistency of cookies--maybe the cooking time was not long enough? The glaze also turned out clear, not the nice white kind you have in the picture. They were quite a hit though and I added this recipe to my recipezaar cookbook. I made a double batch a second time to bring to a party and added a cup of coconut and sprinkled on turbinado sugar to add some texture. They went over very well and several people asked me for the recipe.
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!
These cookies are awesome! I only used half of the sugar that was called for and used 2 teaspoons of pumpkin spice instead of the other individual spices. I put a small piece of vegan chocolate into the centre of each cookie. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!
