Butter flavor Crisco shortening works great in this recipe. If you want a healthier cookie with more flavor, use half brown sugar and half white sugar, half whole wheat flour and half white flour, decreasing the shortening to 3/4 cup. For a spicier cookie that tastes more like pumpkin pie, use 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp ground cloves, and 1/4 tsp ginger (or just use 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice). Cream cheese frosting goes very nicely with these cookies, per suggestions from prior reviews. Thank you for a great eggless cookie recipe!!!


Thanks for a great recipe! My daughter is allergic to eggs and she loves this treat. I made it with half brown sugar and half white sugar for a chewier cookie, and also subsituted half of the recommended amount of shortening with margarine. They tasted great!! I left out the chocolate chips for half the batch and they were still delicious!!


I had no eggs in the house and wanted to make pumpkin cookies to send in my college daughter's Halloween care package so finding this recipe was serendipity! I made a few changes: I halved the recipe and substituted margarine for the shortening. I also added a half cup of toasted chopped walnuts and a half teasp. of nutmeg and a pinch of allspice. I chilled the batter while I cleaned the kitchen and then rolled the batter into balls. I rolled the balls in granulated sugar and then flattened them with a fork. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us Arlene!
