This type of cookie gets its name because the cookies are rolled in confectioners’ sugar to look like little snowballs, but it is also because the cookies have a wonderful melt-in-your-mouth quality to them.

Low Fat Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

Low Fat Chewy Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are really two kinds of pumpkin cookies: chewy cookies and cakey cookies. It’s not impossible to make crispy pumpkin cookies, but since pumpkin is such a moist ingredient, it makes much more sense – and, usually, a better tasting cookie – to bake it into a form where its moisture will be an asset.
