I love these cookies! (Guests loved them, too!) While I am ususally a big fan of crisp cookies, I thought the texture of these cookies was great! Very soft and moist, but not gooey or wet. The b...

This recipe was good except it could have used about twice as much pumpkin! Was hard to taste as it wasn't that noticable. I used raisins instead of butterscotch bits.

I made theise cookies for my class and they LOVED them. I put white chocolate chips insted of butterscotch chips.
