Pumpkin Cookies FAQs

Can you use pumpkin pie filling instead of pumpkin puree?

No, these two are not interchangeable in pumpkin recipes. Pumpkin pie filling is spiced and sweetened, which pumpkin puree should be 100% cooked, pureed pumpkin. You can use canned pumpkin or make your own.

Can you serve them warm?

If it’s been a day or so, you might want to zap the cookies in the microwave for a few seconds before serving to get the chocolate chips and mini marshmallows nice and gooey again. That way they will taste like you just baked them.
