Pumpkins are easy to find, especially canned. It is sold in every store in fall. If you will decide to go fresh pumpkin puree route, its is easy to make to. Just bake pumpkin and puree it.

Tips for making chewy pumpkin cookies

Tip 1. Dont overbake them. You want them to be very soft to the touch when still on the baking cookies sheet. They will get a bit harder when cooled.

Tip 2. For this recipe i would not use a pumpkin pie filling. It watered down and cookies will never be consistency you want. I like to use canned pumpkin for my cookies, its usually made just with pure pumpkin puree without any extra ingredients.
