I already had a can of Pumpkin Pie Filling so I used that instead of the pumpkin puree and spices (cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg). Secondly, I used a can of whipped vanilla frosting for my filling. Thirdly, I always do a test of 3 cookies to see how they will bake up. These cookies should rise and look more cake like. The batter should be a thick creamy consistency. If they spread to much I make them smaller. If they don't rise enough I add 1/4 cup of self rising flour until I get the consistency I want.
If this recipe doesn't work for you, I suggest you do a Google search for a recipe of your choice.
