Pumpkin White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I wanted a pumpkin and white chocolate chip cookie that was a delicate cake-type cookie  filled with pumpkin and spice flavors.  Adding the white chocolate chips gave them a creamy accent.  I found that the combination made a tasty cookie.  I had some left-over pumpkin at Thanksgiving and came up with this recipe to use it.Pumpkin Cookie

3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3/4 tsp. ground cloves
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp. baking soda
2 sticks (1 cup) butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 large egg
2 tsp. vanilla
1 (12 oz) package white chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Spray a cookie sheet with cooking spray; set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together flour through baking soda; set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugars.  Mix in pumpkin, egg and vanilla until well combined.  Stir in flour mixture, mixing thoroughly.  Add chips.  Stir in nuts, if desired.  Cover and put in refrigerator and chill for half an hour.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Put spoonfulls of dough on cookie sheet, flatten slightly.  Bake for 12 minutes until the edges of the cookies start to brown slightly.  Remove from oven and let cookies remain on the cookie sheet for two minutes then remove to a cooling rack.  Spray cookie sheet again and continue baking cookies until finished.  Makes 3 to 4 dozen.
