“This is my adopted recipe.I have made these now and if you like pumpkin and walnuts you will like these. The original recipe didn't have any nuts in the ingredient list so I tried 1 cup and that seemed to be fine. No milk was listed so I used about 1 tablespoon in the icing. She/He also had 84 as the amount, I only got 58 cookies. Even DH, the picky one, enjoyed them.”
