For the Cookies:
2 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
3/4cupunsalted butterat room temperature
1/2cuppacked brown sugar
3/4cuppumpkinwe use Libby's canned pumpkin
Cinnamon Sugar Topping:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with Silpat baking mats or parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices. Set aside.
Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add the pumpkin, egg, and vanilla and mix until combined, about 3 minutes. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. Stir in the cinnamon chips.
In a small bowl, mix together sugar and cinnamon. Shape dough into rounded tablespoons and roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. Place balls 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Lightly press down on the cookies with a spatula or the palm of your hand.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to brown around the edges. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
Note-I can usually find cinnamon chips at the grocery store, but if you can't find them, you can always order cinnamon chips from Amazon.
