  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350 °F, and lightly grease a baking sheet – or two if you have them.

  • In a second bowl, beat the butter and sugar together until fluffy in texture.
  • Add the egg, pumpkin purée, and orange juice until well blended.
  • Combine half the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, and blend.
  • Add the remaining dry ingredients and blend together.
  • Stir in the white chocolate chips last, and try to distribute them as evenly as you can in the dough.
  • Spoon dollops onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and sprinkle on top.
  • Bake in the oven for about 15 to 18 minutes until lightly browned on the bottom.
