I like the flavor of these, and they're pretty easy to make. I decided to just double the recipe since I thought it would use up one can of pumpkin. The final result reminds me of a muffin top. Top of the muffin to you!
Spiced Pumpkin Cookies
From EatingWell: The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)
The deep flavors of molasses, cinnamon, ginger, allspice and nutmeg make these wholesome pumpkin cookies delicious without the addition of butter—and they lend themselves beautifully to the inclusion of whole-wheat flour. They are also the perfect texture for a sandwich cookie—fill them with a slightly sweetened cream cheese frosting.

"To the person who posted on 9/18/2009....these are "cake-like" cookies, therefore it will be like a cake batter...THESE ARE YUMMYYYYY!!!! I have made them with raisins, and other times have made them with chocolate cookies...will keep this recipe as a favorite
If you like soft/cake like cookies, you will love these. I added dried cranberries instead of raisins. Wasn't sure what to do with the rest of the canned pumpkin until the family ate all the cookies. So, I can make more cookies!
Delicious! Before making these cookies, Libby's pumpkin cookies were my go-to recipe. However, in the past 1/2 a year or so, I've been really concentrating on eating better, so when I went to make the Libbys cookies tonight for a school party tomorrow and saw the amount of sugar and butter, I did a double take. Luckily, I found this easy and at least as tasty recipe! Yum! Followed exactly (except instead of "light brown sugar", made 1/2 of the total amount dark brown and 1/2 of the total white--same thing), and they came out as perfect, moist but not soggy, flavorful cakey/muffin-top-but-better cookies! Highly recommended.
notes for Spiced Pumpkin Cookies
date: f 2/26
taste: spices came together well; all-spice was left out. i liked the
addition of chocolate chips as opposed to raisins.
texture: not combined very well, not really on, probably because of absence of butter!
overall: didn't take like cookies, tasted like health snacks w/spices.
