I vote for chocolate chips and maybe toasted almonds...


Not too sure about chocolate and pumpkin together, but I like the idea of nuts. Gramma always used walnuts in her pumpkin bread and sometimes raisins, as well. Toasted coconut might be an option. I'm confident that you will find the right balance and these cookies, like all the others, will be super spectacular!

Hi, Jonnazz. Maybe I'll do some with walnuts and some without. Maybe craisins?

Hi, Mumma. I think you'd anything with coconut in it. Coconut and pumpkin...I dunno.


I'm with Jonnazz. I think chocolate chips and toasted almonds are a good combo with the pumpkin pie flavor. Could it be that we have similar taste?


Full disclosure: We have a 20-something pound bag of walnuts in our freezer that someone is itching to get rid of...


Lorraine and I do have similar tastes...probably because she used to get me ice cream flavors that she liked (coffee and mint chocolate chip) so she could "help me out" finishing them...


BUSTED!! Just had a major LOL moment. You and your amazing memory!



Make a pumpkin flavored Golden Girl. Pumpkin cheesecake is fabulous. I am not a fan of the pie, but the cheesecake is awesome. And don't grind the graham crackers too finely or caramelize a few of them for that added crunch for those who are allergic to nuts.

I think I'm just going to stick to pumpkin, spice, and chocolate.

Alicia: That's a great idea! I'll have to make pumpkin Golden Girls before Thanksgiving!


I've always found the texture of pumpkin pie a turnoff, so I look forward to seeing how your cookies turn out! I think that's just what they need!

On another note, we have a favorite healthyish dessert in my family. We call them "Muffkins." You mix a can of pumpkin (like in your picture) with Devils food cake mix and a tbsp. of water. Then bake at the time and temp on the box, in mini-muffin tins. SO GOOD!! Chocolatey and dense and wonderful, all bite-sized. Just sharing the love!!

Hey, April. That sounds good, and I really like the muffin shape. Thanks for sharing the love!
