Pumpkin Drop Cookies

1 1/2 sticks butter — at room temperature
2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup canned or cooked fresh pumpkin puree
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 Pinch salt
2 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin-pie spice
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl beat together butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla until light. Beat in pumpkin. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and pumpkin-pie spice, beating until blended. Stir in chocolate chips and walnuts. Drop teaspoonfuls of batter 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until edges are golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer cookies from baking sheets to a wire rack and cool. Yield 6 to 7 dozen 1 1/2-inch cookies.
