    Perfect cookie! To the reviewer that gave these a 4 our of 5 star because she wanted a crispier cookier and less cake like... if you have followed the recipe like it said you might have gotten what you wanted. Brown sugar will make a cookie softer. Please dont rate a recipe if you change it up and dont like what you did to it.... These cookies are perfect just follow the recipe.  -  04 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    These cookies were very good - definitely something I will make every fall. I'm cutting back on the butterscotch next time because it made them too sweet and they overpowered the pumpkin taste. Cooking time was more like 12-14 minutes. And no, they don't spread, so make sure you like the shape of them going in the oven because that's what they're going to look like when they come out.  -  15 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really yummy, soft cookies! The use of butterscotch morsels sounded strange, but it turned out to add a lot to the cookies. I used 1-1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice instead of 1 tsp cinnamon, and I had to bake the cookies for 13-14 minutes. I'll definitely make these again!  -  29 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
