Excellent recipe. Made a few changes according to reviews- used butter instead of shortening, used rounded teaspoons of spices and included rounded teaspoon of pumpkin spice. Used whole bag of chocolate chips. Used a generous 1 1/2 cups of pumpkin. Accidentally forgot baking powder. Still turned out amazing and were eaten in 24 hours. - 16 Oct 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are a big hit with my family! I actually use the entire can of pumpkin and add a little more flour to 'dry' out the batter. I also use half a bag of chips for a single batch, but I rarely make a single batch! I double the recipe by using a large can of pumpkin, and double the rest of the ingredients. It's quick and easy, and everyone loves it! - 21 Apr 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
These are awesome! I make these every year around this time,they are my husbands absolute favorite! I make a few changes due to personal taste though. I use 1 1/2 cups pure pumpkin, and I use 1/2 cup butter plus 6 T. water instead of the shortening. I also like a bit more of the spicy flavor so I use 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice instead of the called for spices. You could even add another 1/2 to 1 tsp for an extra kick. I also use 3/4 cup white sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar. I use 1 cup chopped walnuts and 1 whole bag of chocolate chunks. Basically just added more of the yummy stuff!DELICIOUS! Thanks for the fantastic recipe! - 27 Sep 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
