I struggled with the choice between four stars or five, and opted for four only because I hold five star recipes to an extremely high standard and dont give that away lightly. Anyway, first I should confess that I do not like pumpkin. I chose to make these cookies in the spirit of Thanksgiving, expecting to skip over them for some apple pie at dessert time. BUT, when other pumpkin haters started gobbling them up, I gave in and tried them. Yum ! I was pleasantly surprised.
The only problem I had was the cook time. I took them out after 11 minutes and let them cool, only to realize that they were not done. So I put them back in for a bit and I still think they could have cooked longer. Very gooey. Could be my oven I 'spose.
The oatmeal texture in a gooey cookie takes some warming up to, since they are so cakelike. But I did end up eating about 6, so I guess it's easy to overlook!
