Rebecca and I also made a batch of pumpkin cookies yesterday. Another easy pumpkin recipe from Two Peas and Their Pod. These are more cakey than most cookies. But still very good. They got 2 thumbs up from the 3 of us. And great reviews from my parents as well! Plus I like that they are a little healthier than a lot of cookies…whole wheat, oats, applesauce, pumpkin…not bad. So far so good with my pumpkin experiments. I haven’t made anything I don’t like yet. These were very easy to make. I used half semi-sweet and half white chocolate chips. And I had to bake mine a little longer. Just depends how big you make the cookies and what kind of pan you use. Some took about 12 min. Some took more like 15 min. I didn’t use silpat or parchment paper (I forgot) and they came off the pan no problem at all. I got 32 cookies out of this batch.
