Deluxe Nutmeg-Pumpkin Cookies
  • 1  cup  butter, softened
  • 1  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 2  teaspoons  freshly grated nutmeg or 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1  cup  canned pumpkin
  • 1  egg
  • 2  teaspoons  vanilla
  • 2  cups  all-purpose flour
  • 2  cups  white baking pieces (12 ounces)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, nutmeg, and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in pumpkin, egg, and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Stir in white baking pieces.

2. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. If desired, press a pecan half gently onto each cookie. Bake in the preheated oven for 11 to 14 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; let cool.
