Pumpkin Cookies (Balkabakli Kurabiye)

½ cup softened butter (1/2 stick)
1 cup sugar
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 Tbsp vanilla
1 ½ cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
A pinch of salt
A pinch of nutmeg (optional)
A pinch of ground cloves (optional)
A pinch of ground ginger (optional)
1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
1/3 cup raisins

Heat the oven to 350 F (180 C). Grease a baking tray or line with cookie sheets.
Using a mixer or your hands mix the butter with sugar until smooth. Once the mixture is light and fluffy beat in the eggs, then mix in the vanilla and pumpkin puree. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and the spices. Slowly beat the flour mixture into the batter and stir in the walnuts and raisins.
Scoop the cookie dough by heaping tablespoons onto the prepared cookie sheets or baking tray and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the cookies are browned around the edges. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool.
ENJOY
