These are the most amazing

These are the most amazing cookies ! They are NOT like the crisp-crunchy cookies most people think of . . . but have a delicate cake like texture. Reminiscent of pumpkin pie ! Absolutely heaven ! We love eating them warm, right off the pan. HAHAHA
The only changes I made, was I added a stick of margarine in addition to the shortening. I also added Cinnamon. I WILL make these again and again. Oh yeah . . . Delightful recipe !

These are nice (cakey, not flat), but are plain; not very sweet, which may be a good thing. I left out the raisins and added some cinnamon and chocolate chips, but they still need something; I'm thinking some sort of pumpkin glaze. Couldn't taste the pumpkin, but I used a pie pumpkin that I roasted in a solar oven rather than some out of the can.
