  • Additional Information

    I usually make a double batch and use the rest of the pumpkin which is about 2 cups. You can also substitute the chocolate chips for raisins and chopped nuts. Also grated orange peel gives it a great flavor. You could omit the chocolate chips and frost the cookies instead.
