    Great cookies...used 1/2 c. butter and 1/2 c. applesauce instead of shortening to cut down on fat and they turned out great. Also added 1 tsp of nutmeg.  -  28 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe! Because I knew this would be a more cake-like batter I just spread it in a 13 by 9 inch pan and made pumpkin squares. I only had to bake it for five minutes longer and they came out so fluffy and light. Instead of just a cup of pumpking I added at least another fourth for more flavoe and a half cup of oats. Though I think next time I'll add a full cup. Definitly making this again- we loved it so much my boyfriend is taking a bunch to work for everyone to try  -  25 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    very good. used 1/2c butter & 1/2c apple sauce instead of shortening. also added a big of nutmeg, and used the whole can of pumpkin. hit the spot, no icing needed.... but i would probably use cream cheese icing if i did ice them.  -  18 Jan 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
