    These are grreat cookies! I did substitute 2tsp cinnamon, 1tsp ground cloves, and, 1/2 tsp ground ginger instead of pumpkin spice. Turned out wonderful!  -  26 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have made this recipe several times and it always comes out great. What a way to use extra pumpkin. I freeze pumpkin in 1 cup measures and use it whenever I make these cookies. Thank you!!  -  10 Aug 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
