Spiced Pumpkin Cookies

Rating: 4 stars 11
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.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Rating: 5 stars 1
Classic chocolate chip cookies get a fall update by mixing in pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice.

Use chocolate chunks for big gooey bites of chocolate or opt for mini chocolate chips to ensure a bit of chocolate in each bite.
