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.

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!
