Addictive Pumpkin Cookies

I had some leftover canned pumpkin in my refrigerator, plus half a bag of white chocolate chips in the pantry, so yesterday I tried a new recipe and made these cookies. They're marvelously autumnal and/or holiday-ish, so whether you're still in Thanksgiving mode (leftover turkey, anyone?) or are already embracing the winter holidays, these cookies seem perfect either way. They ended up being the best cookies in all of existence, in the entire history of the world. You're welcome.

By the way, I altered the recipe and used half whole-wheat flour, half white flour instead of all white, and they still turned out so addictive that it was a good thing I was freezing them for future hostess gifts, treat deliveries, or times I suddenly need refreshments to serve for unexpected company. Oh, and in case you try the recipe, note that I baked them for a shorter time than the recipe indicates -- eight minutes, then I let them rest on the cookie sheet for a minute or two before removing them to a wire rack to cool. They will seem soft and fragile, but when they cool they will remain soft and chewy. OMG yum.

Try them. But only if you're okay with the possibility of eating way too many cookies. Because they are goooooood.

Oh my. I am intentionally NOT making these. My thighs are big enough without them : )
