Pumpkin cookie recipe…yum yum

Since Rusty posted a pumpkin soup recipe, I wasn’t sure about putting this one up, however, having made some today, I have an obligation to your tummy to post one of the best darn cookies around. 

white chocolate macadamia nut pumpkin cookies

3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
cinnamon to taste
nutmeg to taste
cloves to taste
ground ginger to taste
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 cups white chocolate chunks or chips
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts

1. in a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

2. in a large bowl, soften the butter in the microwave and cream in the white and brown sugars, pumpkin, vanilla, and eggs. add cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ginger to taste (or smell). if you don’t have all of those spices, pumpkin pie spice works just as well.

3. gradually mix in the flour and add the white chocolate and  macadamia nuts. spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 15-17 minutes. remove to cool on racks and serve immediately with a glass of  milk as you lounge in front of a roaring fire.
