I surely do not want to offend any person who has ever enjoyed this recipe, however my experience was a very negative one. The cake/ cookie part gave a way too much flower taste. The filling tasted like shortening (Crisco) the sugar in it was very crunchy even if we had used powered sugar the grease taste would still be there. To say the least I was totally disappointed. If I took this to my Church Social, I would be the first Presbyterian stoned to death in West Virginia.

I don't mean to be harsh, but don't think the five star ratings I have read are accurate since the people posting used a different filling. The filling is really bad, very grainy and no flavor. I think using butter instead of shortening and powdered sugar would have made it ten times better. The cookie part was ok, but I have had better pumpkin cookies to. You are better off making a great pumpkin cookie recipe and filling it with a sweet cream cheese filling.

The cookies were wondeful. The filling, however, was awful. The sugar never dissolved into the shortening (even after beating for 10 minutes) so it had a grainy texture and not a lot of flavor. Perhaps powdered sugar might work better. I ended up using a cream cheese icing to fill these and they were delicious!
