Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookies

Looking for a way to use up some canned pumpkin recently, I came across this recipe for Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookies. Oh, my word....DELICIOUS! I would have never thought to put pumpkin and butterscotch together, but they are a heavenly combination. Don't take my word for it. Whip up a batch of these cookies for yourself.

Here's what you need: butter, sugar, pumpkin puree, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, salt, flour, butterscotch chips

Here's how you make them:
Start by creaming the butter and sugar together in a mixing bowl.

Add in the pumpkin and vanilla, mixing to combine.

In separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice.

Add the sifted ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, stirring to incorporate.

Stir in the butterscotch chips.

Drop by tablespoonful onto baking sheet sprayed with Pam or lined with a baking mat.

Press cookies with fork to flatten a bit, as the cookies do not spread during baking.

Bake for about 13 minutes in 350 degree oven. Remove from oven and let rest for 2 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.
Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookies
(makes about 3 dozen)
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup butterscotch chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheets with Pam or use baking mats. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Add in the pumpkin and vanilla, stirring to combine. In separate bowl, sift together the flour, salt, soda, baking powder, cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice. Add to the pumpkin mixture and thoroughly combine. Add in the butterscotch chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheets and flatten slightly with a fork. These cookies do not spread much. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove from oven and let rest for 2 minutes before transferring to wire rack to cool completely.

These Pumpkin Butterscotch Cookies were packed with the all the goodness of fall flavors. I was surprised and delighted with their texture and taste. While we love traditional pumpkin chocolate chip cookies like the ones I made here, these cookies will definitely be added to the fall cookie lineup.
