Better Than _____ Cookies a.k.a. White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

When I told The Man I was in the mood to bake something sweet and I mentioned trying  something new like Pumpkin Snickerdoodle cookies.  He came back with White Chocolate Macadamia Pumpkin Snickerdoodles and we planned a trip to the store to get our ingredients. These cookies are soooo delicious.  I don't know why we haven't done this before. YUM! just doesn't seem enough to describe just how yummy they are.

Just in case you need a closer look. ;-)

Okay, now that I've got you drooling I'll share my yummy recipe.

2 sticks of butter (1cup)
1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup of unsweetened pumpkin puree
1 large egg
3 1/4 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 cups chopped macadamia nuts
1 12oz package white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
Mix together the butter, sugars, pumpkin and egg, beat well. 
Add in the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt and cinnamon. 
Mix until blended well. 
Stir in nuts and white chocolate chips.
Chill dough for about 30 minutes in the refrigerator or if you're impatient like me throw it in the freezer and keep checking every couple of minutes. ;-)
Roll into balls about the size of walnuts.
In a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup sugar with 1 Tablespoon cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of ginger and 1/4 tsp of allspice.
Roll dough balls in the sugar mixture until completely covered.
Place dough balls about 2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 7-9 minutes until lightly browned, but still soft. 7 minutes was perfect for a chewy cookie.
Makes about 4-5 dozen cookies give or take.

Now go bake some cookies! Seriously, these are so good I couldn't wait to share this recipe.  =-)
