Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
I made these for a class Halloween party. I knew the teacher was allergic to nutmeg, so I omitted it easily. Even without it, the cookies were wonderful. The kids loved them. My husband and son had no problem eating the ones that weren't sent to school. Definitely a recipe I intend to keep.
I made these in my Home Ec class (in in 8th grade). Everyone loved them even my friend and I who both hate pumpkin!
The Best Cookies Ever!
These are amazing! Soft and delicious every time. :)
I've made these a few times and even my kids love them.
Very soft and Very tasty
Substituted freshly ground whole wheat flour for the white flour in equal amount, also added 1 Tablespoon of dough enhancer. Used cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. My 5 year old approved: "just good cookies.
