makes about 35 cookies

1 stick butter, softened

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1/3 cup pumpkin puree

1/2 tsp vanilla

2 1/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice

1/4 tsp cloves

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup or more powdered sugar, for rolling

Preheat oven to 350º. Cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla and stir until mixed. Add dry ingredients and spices. Don't add the powdered sugar.

Roll into small balls, about 1 inch wide. The dough will be pretty sticky. Drop into a bowl full of the powdered sugar and coat well. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for about 10 minutes or until the cookies are fluffy and no longer look wet. Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. Enjoy!
