    Have you noticed that no matter what month it is, the holidays are always just right around the corner?

    The world whirls faster and faster until I must admit that those people who leave their Christmas lights on their houses year round may be smarter than I’ve always thought!

    Here at United, we know how busy you are so we’ve decided to do the experimenting for you by trying new holiday-like recipes and giving you our opinion as to whether or not you might like to add some of them to your own family traditions.

    As far as Rickey and Colten are concerned, these are definitely a keeper. The pumpkin in not overpowering at all, only lending a spice to the cookie, and I personally really like the texture of the cookie. And no, I did not forget the eggs! :)

    PUMPKIN WHITE CHOCOLATE COOKIES

    Ingredients*

    1 Cup Butter, softened
    3/4 Cup Brown Sugar, packed
    3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar
    1 Cup Canned Pumpkin
    1 Teaspoon Vanilla
    2 Cups Flour
    1 Cup Oatmeal, I used quick oats.
    1 Teaspoon Cinnamon, I used 2.
    1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
    1/2 Cup White Chocolate Chips, I added a handful more.
    Nuts, if desired

    *These are also good with added raisins and even crunched corn flakes.

    Preparation

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    1. Mix together well the butter and sugars.

    2. Add pumpkin and vanilla and mix well.

    3. In another bowl, combine the next 4 (dry) ingredients. Stir until well combined.

    4. Gradually beat dry ingredients into the pumpkin mixture.

    5. Stir in chips.

    6. Drop by spoonful onto lightly buttered cookie sheets.

    7. Bake for about 13 minutes, but remember time varies according to the oven.

    When I tired of making cookies, I pressed the rest of the dough into a buttered pie plate and baked.

      These look delicious, however I thought something might be missing. No eggs?
