Tips for the perfect cookies every time
Cookies too gooey? Cook longer or add in less pumpkin purée. You may also try adding 2 tbsp flour to the mix.
Cookies too hard? Cook at a lower temperature or for less time.
The trick is removing them from the oven when they’re still a bit soft and gooey.
Cookies always harden up a bit once removed from the oven.
