What a great idea. I love raisins in my pumpkin cookies, I can't believe I didn't think of this myself.
The taste of chocolate with the pumpkin is a treat and suprise to all.
Pumpkin raisinet cookies
I made these cookies at Christmas time to include in my cooky tray gifts. The flavor is great! The cookies however, were a little soft. I prefer a crisp type of cooky for the trays.
I baked these the first time as the recipe states, very moist and tasty. The second time I made them with plain raisins for my husband who does not like chocolate. Even good without the chocolate. Different cookie for the holiday besides the "staples"!
Very unique cookie!!
I loved this cookie. The raisinets are so yummy in them. I used pecans in them also. I also added more spice and 1 tbsp. molasses and 1 tbsp. of honey. These are very cakelike, I like the cakey texture. Do not skip the icing it makes the cookie!!
