Cooking Notes


I wanted to make these vegan, so I eliminated the cream cheese and butter. Added an additional 1/4 cup of pumpkin puree and used 1/3 cup of vegetable oil. They were delicious!


Well spiced and all-around yummy fall recipe. I made these at altitude (Denver/~5000 feet) and adjusted with the standard changes (2 extra tbsp flour, only 7/8 tsp baking soda, 2 tbsp extra pumpkin, and 1 tbsp less sugar). I baked them at 370 but they still took between 12-15 minutes to turn golden. Recommend!


I was a little skeptical since there are no eggs! But they turned out great! I had to cook for about 16 minutes.


I’ve made these a few times. Instead Of cooking them right away, I roll into logs and freeze. The first time , I felt the cooking time was too short. The consistency is very soft and cakey already so felt they were too soft almost crumbly when eaten. So I cooked them much longer the second time until they were brown on the bottom and loved the crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle consistency. From frozen, sliced large 2 to 3 in. At 350 convection bake, for 24 min.


pressed walnuts or pecans into the cookies just before I baked them.no white sugarno cream cheese, take the pumpkin puree up to 265 guse whole wheat flour instead of APget them brown on bottom and parchmentused greek yogurt instead of cream cheese,


Followed recipe as is. Cookies came out great! Sticky dough on parchment paper is challenging at first, but gets easier. Makes about 40 cookies.


Leave out the cream cheese. Keep all the margarine. Divide everything else in half. Serving size about 1 tablespoon. Bake for 12 minutes. Makes 3 dozen.

I just made these as I had left over cream cheese and leftover pumpkin purée. Great use of both.I did not have chocolate chips - so I put in raisins; I guarantee these cookies will not last long at all in this house. At 350 with the convection on they took about 18 minutes. Enjoy!


These are good chocolate chip cookies but not very pumpkiny. If you want pumpkin cookies, keep looking...


This cookie seems a little tricky. If you overbake it you run the risk of making it more of a muffin top texture. Bake it as directed and not longer to keep the texture more like a toll house cookie. Mine never crisped on the outside- I think for that you’d have to live in a very dry climate or alter the recipe somewhat. Great to share with family but I actually agree with some of the other posts- I would not rate this worthy of sharing at a holiday cookie swap, etc.

I forgot to mention a tbsp of espresso powder moistened with a little water!

I cut back on the chocolate chips and about a quarter cup of the white sugar. Added walnut pieces. I also made a latte icing with the other half of the cream cheese brick, about a quarter cup of brown butter, and powdered sugar to spreading consistency. HOLY MOSES they are good! The icing makes them perfect! So much so, I'm taking the rest of the batch into work with me so I don't eat them all myself!


I found it difficult to tell exactly when these cookies were done baking. I let my dough sit in the fridge overnight, both for convenience and flavor development, so I knew I would add some time. In addition, many comments said they increased the baking time. They turned out alright (and got good reviews from those to whom they were served) but I thought they were too dark on the bottom. I also would have liked a more complex flavor, with more from the pumpkin.

I thought these were too sweet and sort of bland. Also -- and I'm shocked to find myself saying this -- they had too many chocolate chips!


I have found that butterscotch chips work nicely with this also.

The first-time I like to make the recipe as its stated, though the spices make up the similar PS blend & I use my own PS blend. That is, 2 Tbs. Cinnamon, 1Tbs. ground Ginger, 1 tsp. freshly grated nutmeg, 1 tsp. cardamom, 1/2 tsp. allspice and 1/4 tsp. ground clove. Everything else, the same. I did think these were good. I made 2 and 3/4 dozen, taking 15 minutes for each pan baking one at a time. Cheers!

They're vegan with a vegan brand of butter and cream cheese. Delicious and our grandchildren enjoyed them.


Skyr works well instead of cream cheese, but these cookies are delicious


Cooked at 18 minutes...very much like a wonderful muffin top as described


These are our favorite cookie, we make them weekly. I cut the sugars back a bit to make myself feel better about that, ha, and use half wheat flour. Also use 3/4 cup dark chocolate chunks and about a half cup of mini chocolate chips. At first just because that's what I had, but then again and again because it tasted awesome. These are the perfect cookie.


Really nice. Cake like and moist. 1.5 cups of chips is enough


Really good. Cake like. Froze first in blue container. Perfect little round cakes
