I made these cookies last night and they were delicious. The only thing I did different was used canned pumpkin pie filling and used a tbsp of pie spice. I added the walnuts too. These were very cake like and mine were spicy but not too sweet. I drizzled the added glaze on them and it made them sweeter and made them look like really fancy pastries. This recipe is a keeper and I intend to play around with it and add different extras like coconut, pecans, butterscotch chips because the main recipe baked so well and the cake like texture was heavenly.
Hello, cookie swap partner! Well, I had some pumpkin to use up and figured who better to try a recipe from than my very own partner! I have to say, these cookies got 5 stars from my whole family. I actually made some without chocolate chips, some with, some iced, and some not. All were delicious but it was amazing how different each kind was from the others. I used a ice cream scoop to drop dough onto the sheet and flattened out the middles a little with the bottom of the scooper. It made them a little more chewy but still wonderfully cakey. Thanks for the recipe (and for the record, my family liked the iced cookies without chocolate chips the best)! I'll post a picture if I can get one before they eat them all!
