I'll admit when I first saw this recipe I was extremely suspicious of a pumpkin cookie that didn't have chocolate chips in it. How could such a thing exist?!?! But it had good reviews so I thought I would give it a shot. I'm a believer! This is the best pumpkin cookie I have ever had and every single person who has tried them has asked for the recipe. I only made small changes. I added 1/4 tsp nutmeg and 1/8 tsp ground cloves. I have started replacing 1 cup of the shortening with 1 cup of the Smart Balance 50/50 Blend. This makes it a tiny bit more healthy without sacrificing the integrity of the cookie. I've started following the advice of one reviewer and making the frosting first so I don't have to wait all day for it to thicken. Also, I haven't found the 10 minute bake time to be accurate, I usually do 12-15 minutes depending on the size of cookie. They are still beautifully soft and cake-like. Give these cookies a chance, you won't be sorry!
