    Wonderful

    Christina Rebbert from Essex, MD

    These cookies were terrific! I wondered if the combination of pumpkin and white chip would go together and it was perfect. I will definitely make these again!

    Best Cookie Ever

    Ruth Lewis from Fresno, CA

    Recently I made this recipe using original Tollhouse Morsels and walnuts. I made the dough one day and refrigerated it overnight. I baked them the following day and were they ever a sensation!! A chocolate chip expert tells me that they are the VERY BEST COOKIE EVER, without a doubt. Now I keep baked cookies in my freezer for the times that I only want one or two cookies. Thanks to Libby's Pumpkin the cookies stay moist and are simply wonderful. My search for the ultimate cookie is over!!

    Incredible!!

    Stephanie Huntsman from CLIFTON, VA

    I substituted walnuts for the macadamia nuts (as my friend's brother is allergic to the macadamias), but these cookies were incredible! We questioned whether there'd be enough dough to bake, and the baked result was even better! We just got a letter back from him requesting more!

    I always get request for these cookies. I do change things around a little bit. I do not use pumpkin instead I had a little bit of milk and taste just as good. I always get request for my cookies whenever I bake for work.

    Pumpkin Cookies

    Janet Bailey from AURORA, CO

    We tried these cookies today. We substituted pecans for the macadamia nuts. The cookies are wonderful! They are soft and moist. The white chips, pecans and pumpkin are a great combination.

    Great cookies

    Linda Randles from NORTH CANTON, OH

    We love cookies and this recipe is great. Pumpkin is a favorite for us and and adding it to this cookie recipe was a great idea. I took some to a party a few days ago and I didn't have any to bring home. Everybody loved them. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Delicious!

    Dee Morales from Defiance, OH

    These cookies are absolutely delicious! I gave some to a friend once, and she claimed they were the best cookies she'd ever tasted!! They are sooo good and easy to make. I made them with walnuts instead of macadamia nuts, since I didn't have macadamia nuts on hand.

    best cookies ever!

    linda ruff from glendale, AZ

    i bake these every year at xmas...i did them without the nuts. i had so many people ask for the recipe or just tell me they were the best cookies they ever tasted. i changed it slightly..i mixed wet ingredients 1st, then folded dry in with a hand mixer. they came out GREAT!! i recommend this recipe to anyone looking for a different kind of cookie. these are very moist.

    The best of all flavors!

    IRMA DONATO from CAMERON PARK, CA

    These were simply fantastic! What a great mixture of flavors. The first batch came out to soft, so I adjusted the temp. up slightly and added 1 min. to the bake time. This recipe is a keeper!

  •  Star(s)

    wow

    Nikki Partacz from EAST AURORA, NY

    The taste of these cookies is so unique, you can really smell the cloves while theyre baking, but its so yummy! not too pumpkin-y, not to much taste of cloves or cinnamon either, a really nice balance.. the white chocolate is a fantastic taste instead of milk chocolate.. i skipped the macadamia nuts but the cookies were great without them!.. Mom enjoys them with her holiday spiced coffee! :)

    WOW!

    Corinne Short from SALT LAKE CITY, UT

    I was a little nerves making these cookies at first, just because I really didn't like pumpkin. It wasn't till I went to work and they had made some cookies that were similar, and they weren't giving away the recipe, so I looked on here and found the best recipe ever! I love pumpkin now.

    I made these cookiesfor Christmas. They were great I made two batches oof thes cookies. One batch I tried NESTLE' TOLL HOUSE Swirled Morsels as the morsel chocolate chip instead of the white chocolate. They taste just even better. This Recipe is a keeper for future Christmas gatherings.

    Great Holiday Cookie!!!

    Rachel G from Beaumont, TX

    I made these for Thanksgiving, they were a huge hit! I'm not a huge pumpkin fan, but I LOVED these cookies. The whole family loved them. I used toasted walnuts instead of macadamia nuts.

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy!

    Aimee Barnes from TITUSVILLE, FL

    These cookies weren't even finished cooling and were disappearing off the rack! While mixing, the aroma was awesome, the baking was making our stomachs growl in anticipation, and the final product was worth the wait. I'm taking them to a cookie exchange tonight, and I'm sure I'll get rave reviews there. They are moist and sweet, but not too sweet. Just right for my pumpkin loving family.

  •  Star(s)

    It's the cookie with a twist!

    Amie Smith from BALLWIN, MO

    What a wonderful delight as this was my first time baking this cookie. Each year I pick something new to bake and my family is enjoying this years selection. It is obvious as the cookies are disappearing fast. They are moist and chewy with a mild pumpkin flavor. Thank you for adding that something special to our holiday season. This is a keeper.

    Delicious- Soft & Chewy

    Lynn Gauthier from Westford, VT

    First time I have tried a recipe from this site. They were simple to make and tasted great. The only thing that I changed was that I halved the amount of white chips so that the cookie would not be so sweet. I used walnuts this time but will definitely make them again using macadamia nuts. I am always looking for new cookie recipes that make soft cookies rather than ones that are hard & crispy. This one is great and is perfect for the fall season.

    Delicious

    Fantabulous Cookies!! ;-)

    Nancy Orlando from NEWTOWN SQUARE, PA

    In my humble opinion, they have everything you could want in a cookie...they are moist, have that crunchy, nutty flavor and the rich sweetness of white chocolate! I made them for work and EVERYONE wanted the recipe that I happily shared!! Thank you!! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!! ;-)

    MONICA DIAZ from TAMPA, FL

    they are always a hit with friends and family. they come out so moist that it just melts in your mouth. also replace white chips for the milk choc. chips. what a hit anytime of the year!!!

    great flavor even my kids loved them

    tracey jones from CHESAPEAKE, VA

    These are a wonderful blend of flavors! I am glad I tried this one. My husband thought they were the best cookies. They spread a bit while cooking but the batter may have been to warm or I pressed them too much.

    Fantastic.........Family was delighted with the Macadamia Nuts in the pumpkin cookies. Could not keep the cookie jar full.

    Smooth cookies with a twist!

    martina ruhle from ANCHORAGE, AK

    I left out the macadamia nuts (couldn't find any at the store), but they were very tasty anyway. Pumpkin has such a smooth flavor, but when you add the white chocolate, it's just devilish!

    Great cookie with a different twist.

    Eric Harper from Decatur, GA

    I was very pleasantly suprised at the results of this recipe. I had never thought of pumpkin cookies, however, since I love macadamia nuts I decided to make them anyway. My family devoured them and have asked for me to make them over and over.

    Awesome flavor

    I make these cookies every year. Even people who don't care for pumpkin love these cookies.

    Excellent Taste

    Bridgette Allen from Charlotte, NC

    This cookie has an excellent taste. They are addicting! The only draw back is they are super soft and hard to store and they stick to the pan when baking. Remember to grease the pan well.

    Mary Luckenbaugh from Shermans Dale, PA

    These are a favorite of my kids, who are both in college. My daughter brought the recipe home from my cousin Jane, after she tried them at her house and my son asks me to make them very often. My co-workers like them too. I have been asked lots of times for the recipe.

    A little skeptical

    shelley robles from rockford, IL

    I was skeptical after reading mixed reviews of this recipe but my family really liked this different combination.plus you can change the add ins a few ways and still have a good cookie.

  •  Star(s)

    Addictive!

    Alice Bartram from Stoneham, MA

    These are very good - somewhat addictive, so be careful! I pretty much doubled the recipe so as to use the whole can of pumpkin (actually increased by 75%, not 100%, which was a bit fiddly). Didn't double the white chocolate chips & used walnuts instead of macadamia as I had walnuts on hand. Would definitely make these again.

    Laura Lerwick from Minneapolis, MN

    I finally got around to making these cookies, and I must say they are really scrumptious!!! They vanished almost immediately. My family couldn't believe how good they were! They are easy to make, and good to eat. We will be eating alot of these in the future.

  •  Star(s)

    Very sweet

    Diane Finley from Burlington, WA

    It was hard to find macadamia nuts so I substituted chopped walnuts in one batch and toasted almonds (that I already had on hand) in a second. With kids home due to snow (I'm an 'emergency' sitter for neighborhood kids during school closings), they were gone within minutes. Kids & hubby really liked them & hubby asked me to make these to take to work with him. :-)

    Tasty but crumbly

    FADRA NALLY from Raleigh, NC

    I made several cookies for Christmas this year including this one. I scaled back the nutmeg just a bit based on other reviews I read. The taste of these cookies was fabulous. My only problem is that they were so soft they were hard to store. They crumbled when I put them into a baggie like the other cookies.
