I have to say...after reading the negative reviews, I was in a complete panic as I had prepared the batter the night before and kept it in the fridge. Tempted to throw it away the next day, I took a deep breath and was glad I didn't. The cookies came out truly delicious! I agree with a few though, that if you're making THAT many changes to a recipe, it's probably not the best recipe for you. Anyway, here are some notes for some of the less drastic changes I would make next time. 1)As a chocolate lover, this recipe definitely called for too much chocolate. I would limit the morsels to 1 cup or 1 1/4cup. 2)Keep the temperature at 350 for 10 minutes! It does not need to go higher. I burned the bottoms of the first batch just by going 5 minutes over. The lumps definitely don't go down like usual cookies, so they will look deformed but they ARE cooked! 3) In a last minute panic, I threw in a few dashes of pumpkin spice (just in case) the pumpkin flavor didn't shine. I doubt a few dashes made a difference, but the pumpkin flavor was there! No, this isn't the BEST cookie recipe out there, but to me these are pretty darn good! I'm so glad I didn't make any of the other recommended changes. This recipe seems to have its quirks already worked out :) ENJOY!!
