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.

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!!

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.

yummy!! I made these with whole wheat pastry flour and 1/2 cup of applesauce instead of the butter or oil. Everyone loved them and they were sweet enough without any additional frosting.

This recipe was very good! I used oil because I didn't have vegan margarine on hand. Th ecokies were done pretty quickly, but they came out very tasty.

I made these and thought I had done something wrong when they turned out like cake but it sounds like everyone is having the same experience. They were still really tasty but I'm trying to make chewy cookies, not mini cakes and I would like to give them as gifts. Any suggestions on how to fix the texture?

These are basically mini pumpkin breads in the shape of cookies, not cookie-like at all. But they were still delicious and easy to make! They're just not the thing to make if you're looking for something cookie-like.
