  2. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Beat in the vanilla and pumpkin until fully blended.
  4. In a smaller mixing bowl, sift the flour, baking powder, salt, and spice together.

  6. Cut a large piece of parchment paper onto a cookie sheet and drop globs on dough onto it, about 2 inches apart each.
