Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (90 votes)

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.

"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! "

"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.
repeat: maybe


FABULOUS!!!! I used the new splenda brown sugar, and substituted applesauce for canola oil. they turned out great- my kids love them, and they are vitually fat and sugar free!!! A keeper!
