My pantry is filled with cans of pumpkin. They were less than half price at the grocery store last week, and I don’t think non-pumpkin-lovers realize how difficult it is to find in the off-season. So I grabbed a few (massive) cans, and am determined to try as many pumpkin recipes as possible.
The cookies I like best are crunchy on the outside, and chewy closer to the middle. Nearly all of my favourite recipes result in this texture, and I wouldn’t change them for the world. However, the other cookie-eater in the house likes soft cookies. Not underbaked…more like pillowy. Cakelike. So in an effort to satisfy Mr. O’s cookie texture preference, and to fulfill my pumpkin dreams, I baked these.
