White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies

White Chocolate Pumpkin Spice Cookies
makes 36 small or 18 large cookies

2 1/4 Cups Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
2 Teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1/2 Cup Butter, Softened
1 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Pumpkin Puree
1 Egg
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 1/2 Cups White Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin spice, and salt in a medium bowl.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, cream butter and white and brown sugars together.  Add the pumpkin, egg and vanilla and combine thoroughly.  Add the dry ingredients in 3 or 4 batches.  Stir in the white chocolate chips.  Drop spoonfuls of cookie dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Cool for a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet then transfer to a wire cooling rack.

These delicious fall cookies are much different then the pumpkin spice cookies I posted last fall.  They are more dense then the regular PSCs and the pumpkin is very subtle, it almost tastes like gingerbread cookies if you didn't know it was pumpkin.  White chocolate pumpkin spice cookies were fast and easy to make and they were scrumptious!  A fun fall substitute for classic chocolate chip cookies.
