Member Spotlight: Laura’s Soft Pumpkin Cookies


All of us here at have the best time scouring your recipes and adding the cream of the crop to the Dine Gallery. Well ladies, I stumbled upon a goldmine (filled with pumpkin and butterscotch, of course) and I want to share it with all of you today…

    Melissa, they should be with all the other versions of chocolate chips for baking! When in doubt, ask someone to point you in the right direction. :)

    These look so good! Here’s another great recipe: Iced Pumpkin Cookies! Soft like bread, but iced for an extra touch of sweetness. And the recipe is from a nut-free website, so they’re allergy friendly for those of us with nut allergies!

  • Shelly Glassen

    I just baked my first batch of these! THEY’RE AMAZING! The butterscotch chips add just the right amount of sweetness, while keeping the cookie not too intensely sweet! The chips get crispy and delicious, and the texture of the cookie is soft. I absolutely love them. The dough is a little soft after mixing all the ingredients together, so I would recommend chilling it for a little while before you put them on the cookie sheet. Thanks Lauren for the post!

  • Brandie Dickson

    I just finished making my first batches and these are seriously to die for! So good! I’ll for sure be making these again some time soon!

  • Alexander Holas

    Ta-da! Unhealthy recipe alert. I would love to develop the same cookie recipe but using only minimum amount of high calorie ingredients, and no sugars, no way…not using that at all, forget about butter too..

  • Alexander Holas

    currently in development (logo and more recipes), but some examples of healthy fitness recipes are there
