These creamy pumpkin cookies are tender little cut-out cookies delicately flavored for fall!

Cookies lack any real flavor. There are so many other cookies that are worth your time making. Dominant taste is white flour. I ground my own spices for this ? Who are these people who gave this 5 stars?. Results are not rewarding, look for another recipe.
I wanted a "healthier" cookie for my child's halloween school class treat. I used 2&1/4 cups whole wheat flour instead of 2&3/4 cups all-purpose and 3 tablespoons less butter (because I used whole wheat flour). I used halloween cookies cutters and decorated with raisins instead of the frosting. They turned out great, not very sweet at all, perfect for a halloween snack because the kids will be having so much candy this time of year.
I suspect the people who found these cookies dry overcooked them. I baked them for about 7 minutes and they were tender and soft right away. I didn't use the frosting in the recipe as I wanted to make Halloween cookies and decorated them with orange cookie icing - perfect pumpkin cookies actually shaped like pumpkins!
They were very dry and had a horrible texture. The flavor was okay, but the rest of it was awful. Not impressed.
I made these in the shape of pumpkins and decorated them with icing and sprinkles. The frosting isn't very good for fancy decorating because it doesn't hold it's shape but the cookies taste amazing!
Very soft dough that did roll out well after chilling. The flavor and texture right out of the oven wasn't that great. Very subtle flavor with almost a dry,cardboard texture. However, after cooling and being stored overnight in airtight container, the texture was soft and velvety and the pumpkin and spice flavors had really popped. Nice to be able to bake one day and frost the next!
These cookies were good and had a great texture, but needed the icing to actually have enough pumpkin flavor and sweetness. Next time I will up the spices in the cookie.

Who doesn’t like Halloween? As you know, this is the time of year I let the boys decorate cookies with crazy eyes, spikes, legs and black icing. Yes, you read that right…black icing. The scarier and more crazy-looking things are, the more the boys are into it.
