    I made these for my BF's sisters college graduation Saturday 12/10. They were enjoyed by all! I used margarine instead of shortening & white chocolate chips. YUM!

    These were a huge hit with my 3-year-old son and my husband and I love them too. I made them yesterday and they're almost gone today! I used butter instead of shortening (I didn't have any) and did half raisins half chocolate chips. Next time I'll use all chocolate chips or all raisins. Yes, they are a different texture than the usual cookie - my husband said they were like muffin tops. I found the ginger and nutmeg a little overpowering too and might try without them next time. Thanks for a great recipe!

    i grew up thinking my moms pumpkin chocolate cookies were the best thing ever!! so dont tell her but i think your moms are better than my moms! i love the addition of ginger in this recipe. the only thing i did different was added a bit more pumpkin (the pumpkin flavor seemed a bit weak) and actually used a little less flour.. also mine took about 13-15 min to cook. and i did double the cinnamon!! thanks i'll have to give this to all my siblings and tell them to replace our moms recipe ;)
