    Sounds delicious! I keep waiting for the price of canned pumpkin to come down this year so I can buy some more. Is it just me or do you think it was a little pricey this year?

    These sound delicious, how would I prepare them for a diabetic and ones who watch their cholesterol?
    Have a great day sewing and remember to "not sweat the small stuff"!!

    Don't know about the cholesterol, but the diabetic, use splenda sugar and brown sugar mix, check for amounts to equal receipt and soy flour, may take a little less flour, so don't add all at once., Maybe egg beaters for egg?

    These cookies sound yummy! I found canned pumpkin in the larger cans at Save A Lot and bought quite a few. I am diabetic and use the pumpkin in alot of my recipes and cut back on the oil. I agree that unfortunately things are not going to get any cheaper but I buy it when I see it on sale. My husband sometimes thinks I am crazy to do this but it saves us money when things are tight. Thanks for sharing your delicious recipe!!!! Happy Holidays.
