These golden cake-like cookies are my favorite, especially around the holidays. They disappear quickly from my dessert trays. The subtle pumpkin and cinnamon flavors pair nicely with chocolate chips. -Tami Burroughs, Salem, Oregon

"I used butterscotch chis and they were great. I also used fresh pumpkin instead of canned and 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon."

"These are delicious and moist. They also freeze very well. I put them in sandwich bags and then in a freezer bag. Perfect!"

"A favorite recipe to keep and share with friends and neighbors. The flavors are so delicious. And the chocolate gives it that extra delicious mix. I often use mini chocolate chips. I also had to bake longer than suggested."

"Pumpkin was very subtle. The cookies stayed moist and chewy. I substituted 1/2 white chips and 1/2 butterscotch chips for the chocolate. Everyone in the family loved them!"
