This will probably be one of the last pumpkin related posts I do this year. I have really enjoyed trying out various pumpkin "inspired" recipes! I made these cookies twice within a week (not for just us, but my manager for a party she was having), but have not had a chance to post them yet.
I got this recipe from my friend Amy and I am so glad I got to try them. They were really good and easy to make.
Amy said they yield about 40 cookies...I made around 24 bigger sized ones. As much as I like cookies, I really hate getting them on the pan.
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup pumpkin
2 2/3 cup flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup chocolate chips (I used white chocolate)
1/2 cup nuts (I used walnuts)
1 cup rasins (optional, I didn't use)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together butter and sugar until smooth and creamy. Add vanilla, egg and pumpkin.
Mix dry ingredients together and sift 2 times. Then add to pumpkin mixture, mixing well. Fold in the chocolate chips, nuts and raisins.
Drop by spoonfuls on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Now, I baked mine longer because they were a larger sized cookie. Mine were closer to 20 minutes until the tops and the bottoms were golden brown.
Cool completely. Enjoy!
