Reviews for Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies
"I like these cake-like cookies. I only gave it 4 stars because I wanted to bump up the flavor a bit. So, I used the spices they call for in a pumpkin pie. The recipe on the canned pumpkin. 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. ginger, 1/4 tsp. cloves. That tasted perfect. Next time I might try using half white and half brown sugars, like I do in pumpkin pie."
"I only ever give 4 stars because there's always room for improvement. I lost my own recipe so looked up this one. I'm so happy it was as good if not better than my own. My girls loved it and they are the true test of pumpkin chip cookies, they ask me every year to make them."
"My daughters and I made these cookies today. They are awesome. We added pecans instead of walnuts because that is what we had on hand. Yummy and Delicious."
"Very good, cake like cookie. Kids liked them too!"
"Yummy. A bit like cake but still good. One of those once in a while desserts."
"My family devoured these! They are moist and delicious."
"I agree with the other reviewer that there is not enough pumpkin flavor. Not sure what it needs more of -- spices? Butter vs oil? Nice texture though!"
"I thought this would be a good combination, but it didn't quite come out to my expectations. It doesn't have the pumpkin flavor I thought it would. Also I don't care for cake-like cookies and that is how they turned out. Great idea, but not quite there."
"These cookies are so soft and chewy it is hard to find a better cookie. I made two batches, one with white chocolate chips & walnuts (my husband doesn't care for chocolate) and the other batch with dried cranberries and pecans. Both were a huge hit with everyone who tried them."
"These cookies are always a hit. I leave out the walnuts and ice them with a store bought cream cheese frosting."
