1 c. butter

1 c. natural cane sugar

1 c. pumpkin puree

1 egg

1 tsp pure vanilla

2 c. whole wheat pastry flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1 tsp ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375.

Cream together the butter and sugar, and then add the pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Mix until well blended. Sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice and salt and then add to the mixing bowl. Stir well to form a soft batter. Stir in nuts, raisins and chocolate chips.

Drop by rounded spoonfuls (We use a cookie scoop) onto a cookie sheet, and bake for 10-15 min.
