My husband and two kids are sure to eat the first dozen of these cookies, warm from the oven, before the next tray is even done. A co-worker gave me the recipe for the pumpkin dip, which everyone loves with the cookies. —Kelly McNeal, Derby, Kansas

"Very good. Took these to a party. Everyone loved it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 11, 2014 Edited Oct. 12, 2014

"A really nice tasting cookie! I found the dough quite soft to work with but still doable. The dip is nice, but maybe a pinch of cloves would have gave it a nice zing. Day 2: Took these to work today. Everyone raved about these cookies. The dip thickened in the fridge overnight and the flavours blended nicely together."

"The cookies are delicious with or without the dip, which is also very good. Definitely a keeper! Makes a huge batch."
