I really don't like cakey cookies so I tried to modify these and make them more "cookie-like". The best I can say is I got them to flatten out, but really, the texture still reminds me of pumpkin bread in little cookie shapes. I cut out a cup of the flour, reduced baking soda and powder each to 1 tsp, used half white and half brown sugar, and used butter (very soft, almost melted) instead of shortening (I HATE shortening). I should have cut the 2 eggs down to 1 but didn't, though that might have helped. I also dropped the cookie sheets down on the counter when I took them out of the oven to deflate them. So like I said, flatter, but still cakey. Bummer. They have a nice taste (I upped the cinnamon and nutmeg and added pumpkin pie space per reviews), but I doubt I will make them again.
