  • This is an amalgamated recipe from internet web sites. All recipes, someone named Chrissy, and Better Homes and Gardens.
  • Note, 1 cup of pumpkin puree is 1/2 a can, may as well double the recipe.
  • Try adding nuts, or raisins. The cookies are very cake like and if you were to adjust the spices, and sub bananas for pumpkin, they might be banana cookies.
  • The frosting is the real treat in this recipe.
