Clara's Pumpkin Nut Cookies

I confess- I don’t know who Clara is, but these cookies are delicious! And with Thanksgiving right around the corner, they’re appropriate for those who like the pumpkin, but not the pie.

Cream together one cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter. Mix together with one cup pumpkin and two eggs. Then, in a separate bowl, sift together 2 cups plain flour, 4 teaspoons baking powder, 2 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ginger and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Mix the sifted ingredients into the first mixture and blend thoroughly. I like to add golden raisins and coarsely chopped walnuts at this point; cranberries are also a delicious addition. I’ve even tossed in some chocolate chips from time to time. Spoon onto a baking sheet and bake at 380° for 15 minutes.
