1 1/2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 stick (8 Tbls.) unsalted butter, softened
1 15oz. can solid-pack pumpkin
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
2 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground nutmeg
Non-stick cooking spray

In a large mixing bowl, beat brown sugar and butter until creamy. Add pumpkin and eggs; beat well.

In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg; stir into pumpkin mixture, mixing until dry ingredients are moistened.

Lightly spray 2 baking sheets with cooking spray. Drop dough onto prepared pans by rounded measuring tablespoonfuls. If desired, smooth tops of the dough with the back of a spoon and decorate with dried fruits or nuts.
