Theresa's Mixed Nuts: White Chocolate Pumpkin Dreams

White Chocolate Pumpkin Dreams

Tis' the season of pumpkin flavored everything, so I feel it's my duty to throw another recipe in the mix! Upon hearing "Why don't you ever make us any cookies!?" from my family, I decided to bake up these amazing white chocolate pumpkin cookies that I got from Taste of Home a few years back. And to answer their question- I don't make cookies because I sit and eat them all when I do, just like I did with this batch.

pumpkin cookies

Ingredients:

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 package white chocolate chips (or 12 oz coarsely chopped high quality white chocolate)

Frosting Ingredients: (note, these are sweet and really delicious without the frosting. If you don't like an extra sweet cookie, leave the frosting off)

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tbsp butter
1/4 cup milk
1 and 1/2 to 2 cups confectioners' sugar

Directions:

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and the pumpkin.Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in white chips.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, or until firm.

Cool on wire racks. Top with frosting, if desired, when completely cooled.

(For frosting, mix all ingredients until well combined.)
