    The Best Cookie

    zaneta bukhtiyarov from Aberdeen, WA

    I love these cookies. I took them to work and they disappeared within an hour. I don't use the icing and find that they are just as good.

    Better with Age :-)

    Bernadette Bigelow from Horsham, PA

    After tasting one cooled pumpkin cookie my opinion was these were just OK. After two days inside the cookie tin their full flavor comes through with every ****. I also placed regular chocolate chip cookies in the tin,the moistness of the pumpkin kept the chocolate chip cookies from getting hard. A winning combination.

    On My Make Again List

    Cindy Papaleo from Holley, NY

    These cookies were easy to make, and the whole family raved about them...will make again and again.

    Delicious!

    REBECCA WEISS from Rio Rico, AZ

    I love to make these cookies for the holidays! I don't think they need to glaze, and are delicious without it.

  •  Star(s)

    Fantastic

    Donna Vasiliou from Sacramento

    The cookies were a success at the Halloween party. At first I was reading some of the reviews and though about omitting the glaze and nuts but the hubby talked me out of it and I'm glad I followed the recipe as is. I did chill the dough for an hour but no need, just used my cookie scooper and made the 5 dozen. They will be made again.

    Okay but not as good as I hoped

    Bonnie Rucker from Gainesville, TX

    I made these cookies according to the directions for a cookie exchange. People who tried them felt they tasted unusual. I glazed them according to directions and they became too gooey. If I make these again, I will not use the glaze.

    Great cookies

    I love these cookies!

    People beg me for these!

    Liz Reinhardt from Los Angeles, CA

    These have become my begged-for cookies that I now make every fall/winter :o9 I stopped using the glace because they're so moist as they are (never have added walnuts either). I also tried substituting butterscotch chips recently and the result was phenomenal. The taste of butterscotch and pumpkin blended so well together! I would give this recipe 50 stars if I could!!!

  •  Star(s)

    GREAT!!! Cookies

    Marlene Michalowski from Midland, MI

    I've been making these for over a year. My grandchildren prefer them to chocolate chip cookies. I add 1 tsp. cinnamon and use 2 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice instead of 1 1/2 tsp. and eliminate the nuts and glaze. Easy and DELICIOUS!

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy...

    IK Vales from Houston, TX

    These were delicious, though I kicked it up a notch with added cinnamon, ginger, more pumpkin pie spice. Just thought to give my tip on any batter type baked goods... Taste the batter before you bake, that way if it tastes bland you can add more xyz spice to get it where you like...Happy Holidays !!

  •  Star(s)

    Mmmm....pumpkin

    Sarah Rasco from Oklahoma City, OK

    I've been craving some pumpkin cookies and these hit the spot. The hard part is to stop eating them! Excellent even though I didn't use the glaze or the nuts.

    less cookie- more cakey

    kristen iclef from vancouver

    this recipe was dissappointing. Batter was very wet and cookies were very 'doughy' tasteing. Galze made them more edible for the little ones.

    Iced & Spiced cookies

    Linda Bailey from Bowie, MD

    This is a holiday standard for my family. I don't use the icing, but I do add raisinettes along with the chocolate chips, and walnuts. They are a big, moist cookie that freezes well, until I am ready to fill our many tins.

  •  Star(s)

    very very good

    DIANNE BRIMM from OROVILLE, CA

    My family loved these. Its a quicker treat than the breads or roll. You can bake and take very easily.

    LOVE 'EM

    Michelle Burnett from

    These were so good, I didn't have a chance to put the icing on them (maybe next time). My son who has refused to eat store-made pumpkin cookies in the past, ate these right up!

    A Little Bland

    Sara Bergen from CENTERVILLE, UT

    These cookies have potential. I think they would be much better if you double the amount of spice that the recipe calls for and maybe even add some extra cinnamon.

  •  Star(s)

    Interesting flavor

    Melissa Kyle from WILLISTON, FL

    These cookies have such a wonderful smell as they are baking! I added a bit more pumpkin pie spice and also some cinamon (per our tastes) and it really feels like fall in the house. These cookies have such an amazing flavor - very yummy! Nice mix of chocolate and pumpkin. Very easy to make.

    These are the best Pumpkin cookies I have ever eaten. My dad ate half of them at one sitting. I did'nt use any nuts though. This was a fabulous recipe, and DEFINITELY worth making again!

    DELICIOUS

    Lisa Allen from Chicopee, MA

    I made these cookies at Christmas and put them in my platters. Everybody loved them. Easy to make and plenty of them.

  •  Star(s)

    Yummy

    Mary from Katy, Texas

    I thought these cookies had great flavor. I loved the chocolate chips in it. The frosting makes the perfect touch to these cookies. However the cookies only hold up a few days, after that they get kinda soggy, but they still taste great even then. I made them for christmas and everyone loved them. My grandfather thought they were great, (he loves soft cookies which these are ) and took most of them home with him. I would make these again but I think it would be best to serve them the same day as you are making them.

    "Heaven Sent"

    I made these for work, for a holiday treat and one of my co-workers called them, "Heaven Sent". They were gone rather quickly..

    New twist on old cookie

    CINDY THACKER from Wooster, OH

    My family loved these cookies. They usually only want chocolate chip cookies and the chips lured them in to try something new.

    Very Disappointed

    Sue Relf from DAVIDSON, NC

    I was very disappointed in these cookies,I did not like the texture they seemed doughy,I even cooked them longer. My family did not like these at all. What a waste of good ingredients.

  •  Star(s)

    WOW!!!!!!!!

    mickie young from nunda, NY

    I received some of these cookies at a cookie swap and my family loved them. I've made 2 batches so far to go on our goodie trays that we give out at holiday time-----I know everyone will love them as much as we do! Next batch I'm going to add some orange zest, probably about 1 tablespoon, I think this will really add something special to these delightful cookies!

  •  Star(s)

    Ok cookies

    I thought these were ok. Granted I personally am not a huge pumpkin lover, but we tried them. This cookie got mixed reviews at my house with my husband, children, and friends.

    Anita Hulstrom from Jacksonville, OR

    I accidentally used double baking soda, so I had to double the entire recipe. The girls at my holiday party loved them, and I have enough to give in holiday baskets! The recipe turned out exact. Thanks.

    Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice

    Cara Duskey from KUNA, ID

    My family LOVED these cookies! They were moist and chewy and soft, with a great flavor, I think the chocolate chips really added to it. I put a dash of chili powder in for some extra spice and nobody could tell! They were a hit for sure! I think I will add this to my holiday favorites.

  •  Star(s)

    Great for thanksgiving

    Nellie Forget from Sacramento, CA

    I made these cookies and they were a hit! Whats great is you can add raisins instead of choc. chips, you can change the nuts you add and more. Tons of variations!

    Good

    These were really good... but without the frosting. I thought the frosting was a little too much.

    My family loves these cookies. Sometimes I change them up a bit by adding white chocolate morsels rather than milk chocolate but no matter which I use they are a crowd pleaser!

    Pumpkin Spiced and Iced Cookies

    Cheryl Herrmann from BUFFALO, NY

    I wasn't sure if I would like these cookies, as I'm not a big pumpkin fan, but these cookies are wonderful. In the three short weeks since I first made these, I've had 2 requests to prepare them for different events, and several requests for the recipe. I will definitely make these again, and recommend that others give them a try.

    pumpkin spiced & iced cookies

    Nancy Alfes from DARIEN CENTER, NY

    These cookies were easy to make and great tasting. My family had them gone in (1) day. I was told to never leave out the chocolate chips. Best eaten while they are warm.

    Pumpkin Spice Cookie

    Roseann Gillig from HUNTLEY, IL

    I wish I could say I loved these as the others have here. I didn't. They are ok, but ok isn't good enough. Not enough spice. If I were to do them again they need more of something. I'm not sure chocolate chips are key here either. Sorry they were not a hit here.

    Not going to last long!

    Donna from Pompano Beach, Florida

    I made these for my family and they were half gone a couple hours after I made them! My son said they have the resemblance of a muffin. They are really different and definitely a repeat recipe!

    Pumpkin cookies

    Tara Watson from CHEHALIS, WA

    I made these and I really liked them. They only hold up for a couple of days. The icing sure made a difference on the cookies. I tasted them without the frosting and did not care for them to much. With the icing, they were good.
