Servings: 48 cookies
Calories: 98kcal

Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter, room temperature
  • cups granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (Optional)
  • 1 cup raisins (Optional)
  • ½ cup walnuts (Optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°. Grease a cookie sheet or line with a Silpat mat or parchment paper.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg, pumpkin, and vanilla, stir to combine.
  • Fold in the dry ingredients just until combined. Add any of the optional items that you wish.
  • Drop dough by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until tops are set and bottoms are golden. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

Notes

I use salted butter, but unsalted will work just as well. Or shortening can be used instead of butter.
