Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

I make cookies often and blog about them on my cookie blog, but this cookie has to be here and I have to say it is one of my favourites.

2 cups all purpose flour
2 1/3 cups oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg
good pinch of all spice,
2 sticks)unsalted butter at room temperature
3/4 cup dark brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup fresh pumpkin puree
1 large organic egg
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cinnamon and brown sugar for sprinkling on top of the dough before cooking.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Combine flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and salt in a bowl. Cream butter, honey and sugars in large mixer bowl until light and fluffy about three minutes. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla - mix well.
Add dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not over mix. Chill dough for 30 minutes. Drop the cookie dough onto baking sheets with a tables`poonspoon. Bake for fourteen minutes. Cool on baking sheets for a couple minutes and then transfer to wire cooling rack.
