Ingredients
 
 

  • 1 cup Unsalted butter melted
  • 1/2 cup Brown sugar packed light or dark
  • 1 cup White granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Pumpkin puree Not the pumpkin pie filling
  • 2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1 TBSP Plus 1 tsp Ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • 2 cups White Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 cup White sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon

Instructions
 

  • In a medium sized bowl, sift together the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Using a mixer, beat the melted butter, sugar, and brown sugar together for 2 minutes on medium. It should become very pale in color.
  • Add pumpkin puree and vanilla. Mix until combined on medium.
  • Slowly add in dry ingredients. Scrape the bowl and mix for 20 seconds. Add in white chocolate chips. Cover and chill for 1 hour.
  • Once dough is chilled, preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. In a small bowl combine white sugar and cinnamon to create a cinnamon sugar mixture.
  • Using a 1 inch cookie scoop, scoop dough and roll into a ball and coat in cinnamon sugar. Bake for 12-14 minutes. The cookies are done baking when edges and underneath are golden brown. Let cookies cool for 5 minutes on a baking sheet. Then, transfer to cooling rack. Allow the cookies to cool completely.

Notes

High altitude baking- Add an extra 2 tbsp of flour.
Flour- Make sure flour is spooned and leveled. Too much compacted flour can make the cookies dry.
Pumpkin puree- The pumpkin is stronger when the puree is cold. 
White chocolate chips- Make sure the chips are actual white chocolate and not white chocolate flavored.
