Over at Sally's Baking Addiction, she did some experimentation on how to get a pumpkin cookie that is both soft and chewy, BUT not cake-like. But, what's wrong with cake-like? I personally love the recipe from Mrs. Field's that is soft and cake-like. They're almost like little muffin tops. But, yes, they aren't very cookie-like. I do think they are delicious, though! Here is that recipe: MRS. FIELD'S PUMPKIN COOKIES.
Sally's solution? No eggs! That's right, folks, it's that simple... The pumpkin does the job that the eggs usually do. What's also awesome about that is that you can eat some of the cookie batter guilt-free!
Here is the recipe: http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/2013/09/04/pumpkin-chocolate-chip-cookies/ . It is so delicious and I love it a lot. I will definitely be making it again sometime! She states that you should get 2 dozen cookies if you make cookies using two tablespoons. I would have only gotten a dozen if I used two full tablespoons. I scaled back to about one tablespoon and still only got about 18 cookies. If you try them, let me know what you think!
