OK I give! I haven't been able to find a pumpkin cookie recipe that isn't cake-like so I'm just going to have to deal with it. That said, these cookies are amazing! I tried the "Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies" recipe on this site and I thought they were good, but I think these are better. I did, however, make a few changes to this recipe. I used 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of Spice Islands' pumpkin pie spice (they're all a little different), 1/4 tsp ginger, 1/8 tsp nutmeg & 1/8 tsp cloves. I used toasted pecans instead of walnuts and I used about 1 cup of chocolate chips. The other recipe I used had twice as much batter and half as much chocolate chips and there was STILL too much chocolate in those cookies - you couldn't taste the pumpkin at all. I'm telling you if you like the taste of pumpkin go VERY easy on the chocolate chips - the chocolate can really mask the pumpkin flavor. If you love chocolate that much just make chocolate chip cookies and throw some pumpkin pie spice in the mix. I too had to crank the oven to 375 and bake for 15 minutes, but my oven temp is kind of lame. Other than that, this recipe is fantastic!!
