As we've just moved house I could not weigh out the ingredients properly so I scaled in cups to make do, but despite this they came out quite well! I tweeked the recipe by not adding so much spice, as those spices are not quite to my taste and perhaps in the future I'd add more vanilla, perhaps some chocolate chips/apricot chunks or something of the like to make up for the lack of spices. These seem like they'd be perfect with afternoon tea! Although I don't understand what the pumpkin gives to the flavour, unless it's just a bulking agent? Anyway, thanks for a nice recipe, was a good one to try Holly ♥ - 31 Oct 2010
Very lovely, so moist and different. Will be making again, thank you! - 14 Oct 2013
I was pretty disappointed with this recipe since they are pretty much cakes rather than cookies. For my second batch I used only 200g pumpkin and omitted the bicarbonate of soda. The result was a lot more like an actual biscuit and was preferred by everyone that I fed them to. - 01 Feb 2017
