"These cookies are rolled in sesame seeds -- that might not appeal to everyone. I like the sesame seed coating, but it's not quite perfect for me, and I'll be experimenting with different seeds/nuts to see if I find something better."
Beat 1 cup sugar and butter until fluffy. Mix in egg whites.
Combine flour, oaks and baking soda; then stir into sugar/butter/egg mixture.
On wax paper, press dough into a 16" x 12" rectangle. I put the dough between two sheets of wax paper and use a rolling pin to flatten the dough.
Combine pumpkin, 1/2 cup sugar, and spice. Spread over dough, leaving a 1/2" border.
Starting at the narrow end, roll up the dough. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, pressing seeds into the dough.
Wrap dough in wax paper and freeze until firm. I freeze the dough overnight, but 2-3 hours is probably all that is needed.
Heat oven to 400°F Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Cut dough into 1/4" slices. Bake 9-11 minutes or until golden.
One of the most flavor-filled cooking styles you can make is with a slow cooker. No matter...

I am on a roll. And when I am on a role, I go all out. What, you ask? Pasta....
This worked great for me. I decided to not use the sesame seeds and instead sprinkled chopped nuts, that I chopped real well, on top of the filling. Very delicious this way!
Made these for one of our Thanksgiving treats and we loved them, even the kids devoured them! I used pumpkin puree and had no problems with the dough.
I think this is a great recipe, but it needs some tweaking. The dough itself was a bit flat, I added some vanilla, but it needed something else. The pumpkin, I used pumpkin pie mix vs plain pumpkin. I think it had a better flavor. I also added fine chopped pecans inside before rolling and then just rolled the dough in sprinkled sugar before baking which gave it a nice sweetness.
Overall, I love the idea, and I think it is a nice recipe. For me, I just needed to tweak it a bit. I did try 1/2 of the recipe as stated; then made the other half with my changes.
I may try again to perfect it. But I think it has tons of potential.
