Makes about 60

1 cup oil
3 cups sugar
2 eggs -- beaten
3 teaspoons vanilla
5 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons nutmeg
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ginger
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
1 29-ounce can solid-pack pumpkin
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 350 F. Beat oil and sugar in mixing bowl. Add eggs and vanilla, beating well. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices, and salt together. Add to sugar mixture alternately with pumpkin, beating well after each addition. Fold in chocolate chips and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets.

  A cookie baker in southern Minnesota  Dec 11, 2016
Would make this again.
These taste great but they're very, very soft. I wonder if I followed the recipe correctly? What results did others have? 3 stars

Would make this again.
The chocolate glaze kicks them up a notch. Note that the dough freezes quite well. I baked half the cookies, froze the dough, and made another batch a couple weeks later. No problem! 5 stars

Would make this again.
These were fantastic! I topped them with a dollop of cream cheese maple syrup frosting - you can reheat for a couple of seconds and the frosting perfectly melts. Delicious! As an fyi, not sure if I didn't make the cookies big enough (they were a perfect "2 bites"), but I ended up with 9 dozen instead of the 5 dozen. 5 stars

Would make this again.
These cookies were a 'huge' hit with the people I work with. I didn't put any glaze on them, but the next time I make these (which will be very soon) I'm going to experiment with some different glazes rather than relying on the chocolate. I doubled the recipe since I have so many people I need to give cookies to, and it doubled well. Also survived several weeks in the freezer without losing any taste. These are definitely on the cookie list for next year. YUM!!! 5 stars
