  1. So happy to see this recipe. My mother in law used to make these with raisins instead of chocolate chips, 30 yrs ago before she passed. Im excited because now I can make them.

  2. I have not made cookies for years ,after looking at these I guess I will get back in to it , they really they look awfully good.

  3. These cookies look so good, but those fritters…mmmmmmmgood!

  4. Your cookies will make all the little ghosts and goblins happy.

  5. love your blog, im a newbie in the whole blogging business so if you would have a look at mine at i’d be more than grateful

  6. I have a Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, too, and wondered if it was similar to yours. Mine has only three, yes, 3, ingredients!! You need one spice cake mix, one 15 oz. can of pumpkin, and one bag of chocolate chips (I prefer dark chocolate chips in this, but semi-sweet are fine). You mix them all together and bake at 375 degrees for 15-17 minutes or until they look dry and kind of bounce back when u touch them. You can put quite a few on a baking sheet (I use baking stones) because they don’t spread out. I use a small scoop to measure mine out. They are wonderful!!!! My husband is addicted to them!

  7. Those look so soft and chewy. Great recipe.

  8. I just made these and they are delicious, thanks. I just left the nuts out because my son prefers them that way.

  9. those look yummy! I could eat one (or a couple!) right now! 🙂
