Chocolate chip & pumpkin, what a combination! After making this recipe I thought the pumpkin taste was too bitter and I found I wanted to taste the spices more, so next time I used 1 & 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg...also, 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar, and 1/2 unsalted butter and 1/2 shortening. I also made them with and without the walnuts, and they're much better with them. They're a great, unusual addition to my Christmas cookie baking and were a hit with everyone who's tried them.

I got rave reviews from adults and kids with a modified version of the recipe. I used butter instead of shortening. 28 OZ of Pumpkin Puree. I doubled the cinnamon and added two teaspoons of Pumkin Pie Spice.

This recipe makes a lot! I halved it and still came out with 66 cookies/cakes. I wouldn't call these cookies--much more like little cakes--very moist--they were sticky the next day. I used sliced almonds instead of walnuts and they tasted really good. The texture was odd, unlike anything I've ever eaten. When I placed them on the cookie sheet, they were in little mounds and I expected them to melt down and flatten as cookies do but they didn't. Whatever shape you place them in on the rack is the shape they will have when baked. The batter would work well in molds or rings to create an autumn treat. Good flavor but I added more cinnamon and nutmeg because I like these flavors. My husband's golf buddies ate them up!
