These cookies were delicious and very moist. The frosting really complements them. I added chopped pecans on top of the frosting. These cookies remind me of the pumpkin roll. Will be making them again for a holiday party at work.
I needed to bake some cookies for an event and happened to have a can of pumpkin that needed using as it was getting close to the "sell by" date. I checked the internet for pumpkin/walnut cookies and up came this wonderful Land O' Lakes site. I used the Pumpkin Walnut Cookies recipe and first loved the clearly printed double spaced ingredient page. It was so easy to follow. They came out just great! ...like little cakes with the soft middle. Although they are to give away, I sampled a few. Delicious. Today in searching to write this, I saw so many other things I can bake with pumpkin. I LOVE the Land O' Lakes weblite with the colorful pictures of the finished products. I will visit often as it is a trusted brand for many years. Thank you for this great find!
I use black walnuts for these delicious moist cookies. Everyone loves them!! The spice in the frosting adds a special touch also.
I found this recipie years ago in a Land o Lakes paper cookbook. My family loves them. They litteraly disappear from the cookie jar. They are easy and quick to make. Try them, yoy won't be disappointed.
These were the BEST!!!!!!
Super easy. Turned out fluffy & delish. I used choc chips instead of walnuts for the actual cookie. Still used walnuts as garnish. Great combo!
These are so easy to make! And they taste fantastic!
I was looking for a cookie to interchange with my Eastern European ones and I decided to try this one. I found it to be very bland even with some icing and will not use it again. I ended up throwing them out.............
Every year, my family request I make these cookies. I stumbled across this recipe years ago and now everyone asks me to make them. Delicious and are like eating cake. I love making them and will continue to every year!
they were fantabulous! Easy to make and so soft and yummy!
These are amazing! They were simple to make and came out beautifully!
Very moist, delicious cookie. I made these for a wedding cookie table. Pretty to look at and very good. I will definitely make again.
Soft like a little bite of pumpkin cake! I topped the frosting with a shake of cinnamon and a few chocolate chips! These melt in your mouth..
The only word to describe these cookies is "Delicious"! I made these just to try and my family loved them! I am making a double batch tomorrow to share with friends and co-workers. I know they will be a huge hit!
These were great! My kids and husband loved them. I plan on selling them for a bake sale too.
Even my husband, who says he doesn't care for pumpkin, loved these cookies!
I made these with semi sweet chocolate chips and they were delish. I don't know why but they were even better the second day. Must be the flavors had a chance to meld together. Very cakelike but I liked them that way.
very flavorful and easy to make.Great basic ingredients. I like to substitute chopped hazelnuts instead of walnuts.
One word, DELICIOUS! Have made this recipe many times with rave reviews! This is my daughter's favorite! Great fall-time cookie! They are moist and very addicting...

We’re entering a new phase in our life as new parents – the dinnertime meltdown stage (or the “witching hour” as I like to call it). We rush home from daycare, singing “Wheels on the Bus” as many times as it takes to keep him entertained on the 10-minute car ride. It’s the same song and dance when we get home, while his daddy finishes up work and I’m hectically trying to empty the dishwasher, make dinner and keep our little guy from hiding the dog food between the couch cushions.
