My niece was spending the night and I made the `mistake` of shopping with my mother and niece at the same time. Knowing I`m a pumpkin afficiando my mother picked up a package of the Pillsbury Pumpkin Cookies to `show` me them ... that`s when my niece -- a miniature pumpkin afficiando - got all bright eyed and bushy tailed. I stated `No, not happening, put them back.` That`s when my niece (who`s 5) said `That`s okay, gramma, we can hide them from auntie.` Attempt: Failed. That`s when the night turned into `baking cookies with auntie Shannon` - which admittedly was fun and I`m glad to make cookies with her.
The package stated the pumpkin cookies had cream cheese flavored chips. The chips resemble white chocolate chips - but do have a bit of a cream cheese flavor to them. The easiest part, with little fingers, was the cookie dough comes in little pre-portioned sections making for easy baking and even portion sizes. All that was left for me to do was open the package, lay down a baking sheet and my niece broke up the cookie dough and layered it onto the tray. A few rearrangements and the cookies were into the oven for baking.
Since my oven cooks extremely fast, I lowered the oven temperature and cooked for a few minutes less and they came out perfectly. The edges were light brown, the bottoms were cooked, the cookies were soft yet had a slight bit of bite to them. Better yet they were a hit with my niece and my mother enjoyed them. I had one cookie. They`re good ... they do have a chewy pumpkin flavor to them and the cream cheese bits add an extra boost of sweetness. Overall, they`re truly not that bad and an enjoyable, different way to have pumpkin.
