This recipe is a good idea, but needs some tweaks to reach its full potential. I made the recipe as it is written out the first time around. It was ok, but could use more spices. I also noticed that the cookies left an orange/yellow ring on the paper towels from using so much vegetable oil!!
The second time around, I used some other suggestions and played around. I doubled the cinnamon, pumpkin, and vanilla. Then, I added 1 tsp of ginger. I substituted applesauce for the vegetable oil and didn't put in as much as it calls for. I made half of that batch, and it tasted pretty good. It seemed like it would be a good coffee cookie. For the other half of the batch, I added chocolate chips. That seemed to add just the right taste that it needed. I took a huge batch to a youth center and another to a cookie exchange at church (of the chocolate chip pumpkin cookies). The cookies got great reviews at both places.
