This recipe looks like it has a lot of ingredients, but it is all stuff a kitchen normally has. It has a nice cinnamony flavour that I adore. You can substitute chocolate chips or nuts for the sultanas.
You can find tinned 100% pumpkin puree at Waitrose, via Ocado or in specialty shops. You can also make your own with this recipe.

Using the review comments from others, I decided to try to make this cookie more heart healthy. I changed the flour to half whole wheat and half whole grain spelt, I used 2 egg whites in place of the 1 whole egg, I used sucanat (dried liquid cane sugar) in place of the caster sugar, and I used a heart healthy olive oil spread in place of the butter. The cookies were wonderful. I used leftover sweet potatoes and just mashed them with a fork. I will definitely try them next time with chocolate chips in place of the sultanas. This recipe is a keeper. Now that I have converted all the metric measurements to American it will be very quick to make them. - 10 Feb 2014
