Yum! I don’t bake often, and I admit I am really not that good at it, but these are foolproof!
But this recipe is SO good, and the perfect cookie to enjoy on a brisk fall day. I got this recipe out of my (former) neighborhood cookbook, from my good friend Debi.
I distinctly remember about a year ago (probably the last time I baked cookies) her son was at my house and the boys were enjoying whatever cookie I had just made. Her son informed me my freshly baked cookie was “good” but “not as good as his mom’s pumpkin white chocolate chip cookies”. I didn’t forget that, he definitely raised the bar–or at least piqued my curiosity to see just how good those cookies really were.
So, when I found I had the recipe in this fabulous cookbook my neighbors had joined together to make a few years back, I had to try it. I think that her son was right on, these are really good! Just be warned, the recipe makes enough to share.
2 c butter (softened)
2 c sugar
1 16 oz can pumpkin
4 c flour
1 T pumpkin pie spice
1 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1 bag white chocolate chips
1 can cream cheese frosting
1/4c brown sugar
Heat oven to 375.
Stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and pumpkin pie spice, set aside.
Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add pumpkin & eggs beat until smooth.
Slowly add the flour mixture to the bowl. Beat medium speed until blended.
Stir in chips.
Baked on greased cookie sheet 12-14 minutes.
While cookies are baking, mix frosting with the brown sugar. Spread on cookies when warm.
