Pumpkin White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

I've been missing in action this November! Hmm, what have I been doing? Too much shopping, I think!

I really didn't feel like baking these but Maryam kept nagging for them because they're from Closet Cooking and he makes good stuff.

You don't taste the pumpkin too much, its a very suttle flavor - my sister in law didn't know it had pumpkin in it.

I didn't think these were sweet enough so next time I would put more brown sugar. These would be better if I just made them into Zignat's cookie by adding toffee and semisweet chocolate. I'm glad it has oatmeal in it though to make it taste more like cookies. And of course white chocolate and macadamia nuts are great together. Chop the nuts small because macadamias are crunchy.
