Pumpkin Cookies

If you like to hide veggies in your baking then you are going to love these Pumpkin Cookies.  There is no way the kids will be able to tell they contain pumpkin.  They are extremely light and fluffy, and they definitely don’t have a strong pumpkin taste.  I pressed white chocolate chips on top of mine just before baking, but it’s completely optional, they taste great with or without the chocolate.
