My grandson and I enjoyed making this easy recipe. Enjoyed eating them more. We didn't add nuts or raisins this time, but next time will add pecans or walnuts.

Definitely great for the pumpkin-lover in the family! I used chopped pecans, and it was great!

These are theold fashioned soft type of cookie. Used almonds and candied ginger for 'raisins or nuts.'
