Brett mentioned a few times last week that I still had not made pumpkin cookies. He was right. This was just not acceptable, considering we're already 3 weeks in to October! (Is this freaking anyone else out?). We only have so much pumpkin time!
Here are our pumpkin cookies...
Preheat the oven to 350:)
First you sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt
Throw the pumpkin, sugar, butter, egg, and vanilla in to a mixer and beat until blended.
Slowly add the dry ingredients.
Then add those dreamy creamy white chocolate chips!
Place cookies on a baking sheet.
Here's the thing about pumpkin cookies. They don't spread out. I have no idea why but they just don't. You don't need to leave much room between the dough balls and if you're alarmed by a ball shaped cookie just press them down a little:)
Bake for 13-15 minutes.
Even if you bake these things simply for the amazing autumn smell that will fill your house, do it!
Here's my pumpkin cookie... and my hairy pumpkin headed man:) He's cute. He needs a haircut.
Tips: Don't forget to add the baking soda. If you do.. well, I don't know what will happen. I forgot to add it and they didn't seem any different. Also, I cooked 2 sheets at a time and my bottom rack ones got a little too dark. Next time I will cook one at a time and keep it on the top rack:)
