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! "

Add more spice, lose the raisins and add some chopped that's a yummy fall cakish-cookie!


Mmmm! These were awesome, I was craving gingerbread but didn't want all the calories, and these were a good substitute, somewhere between a cake and a cookie. Somehow I only ended up with 22 cookies, so perhaps I need to make them a little smaller? I am doing Weight Watchers program, and if you make 36 they are only 1 point a piece. My mom took two cookies and put a small scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt between them-a fall icecream sandwich! I am making more to take to the family cabin this weekend. Satisfying!


These cookies were soft and cake-like - my friends and I referred to them as muffin tops. Definitely not what I'd call a "cookie", but they were definitely good flavor wise. Very addicting.


I thought these were amazing! I altered the recipe as well in that I reduced the molasses and doubled the spices. The result was a delicious soft spicy cookie/bun! Definitely will keep this one!


I thought these were great! I agree about the molasses and will use less next time but the texture is taste is really yummy!
