Reviews forCranberry Pumpkin Cookies
"I made heaping tablespoons rather than the 1/4 cup size. I baked for 20 minutes and they came out beautifully."
"I needed something homemade to send my brother for his Birthday, and these were perfect. They were moist, chewy, and delicious. Instead of cranberries, I used mini chocolate chips. There are a lot of spices to measure, but it is worth the time!"
"these cookies are DELICIOUS! I made a double batch and they were gone in 1 day. (granted that day was Thanksgiving; but still!)"
"These cookies were tasty, moist, and soft. Really great!"
"bake for 15 min (use big scoop)"
