As promised, I'll soon be posting a recipe for a pumpkin pie cookie. See...I even bought a can of pumpkin!
Full disclosure time, though. I've never eaten pumpkin pie before. I love the way it smells, but I've never actually tasted it. But I'm guessing there's something missing from the mouthfeel experience of pumpkin pie--namely, crunch. Sure, there's the crust, but I think the smooth, custardy texture needs a crunchy element for balance.
I'm toying with including toasted walnuts, but I know some people don't like or are allergic to nuts. I'm also thinking of including chocolate chips (thanks for the idea, Kim), but Mumma seemed dubious when I mentioned it to her. And then I was thinking of including both toasted walnuts and chocolate chips.
Decisions, decisions... What do you, dear readers, think?
