why must u chill 3 hours on pan??? can u just put the bowl in refrigerator for3 hours and then form the cookies????

Hi Jayne…that would be fine as well!

hi5 stars

How many cookies does that make

These turned out wonderful!5 stars

I have never used molasses  for anything would it be bad to just skip that ingredient or is it necessary for something specific 

You can skip it and it should turn out just fine!

My pumpkin pie recipe calls for some molasses so guess it works with pumpkin cookies as well.

why can’t
u just refrigerate the dough in the bowl

Been making pumpkin bread since 1982. It is a recipe our daughter’s kindergarten teacher had. By far best pumpkin bread! Making it next Tuesday with some friends. Make cranberry bread also. Pumpkin pie and mince meat pie are part of every Thanksgiving.5 stars
