White Chocolate Pumpkin Dreams

This was given to me by my mother-in-law from All Recipes. Jean Kleckner submitted it.

1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

1 egg

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 cup canned pumpkin

2 cups all-purpose flour

3 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

11 oz package white chocolate chips or white vanilla chips

1 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

3 Tbls butter (no substitutes)

1/4 cup milk

1 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar

1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Beat in egg, vanilla, and pumpkin. Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Stir in chips and pecans. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls to 2″ apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes or until firm. Remove to wire racks to cool.

2. For frosting, combine brown sugar and butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil; cook over medium heat for 1 minute or until slightly thickened. Cool for 10 minutes. Add milk; beat until smooth. Beat in enough confectioners’ sugar to reach desired consistency. Frost cookies.
