Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 egg
1 c. pumpkin
2 2/3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. nutmeg
1 c. chocolate chips (Used white choc. chips)
1/2 c. nuts, optional (Didn't use)
1 c. raisins, optional (Didn't use)

Cream together butter and sugar. When smooth and creamy add vanilla, egg and pumpkin.

Mix dry ingredients together and sift 2 times. Then add to pumpkin mixture mixing well. Add chocolate chips and optional nuts/raisins. Drop by spoonfuls on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.

This recipe makes about 40 cookies. I used white chocolate chips, but you could use regular chocolate if you like - I didn't want the chocolate to overpower the pumpkin and I would really suggest using the white chocolate chips in this recipe.

This was a hit at my recent fall family get-together from My husband, who isn't a pumpkin fan even enjoyed these. This will become a fall staple in our household.
