Kick the tires and light the fires to 350 degrees.
Cream your butter and sugars together until they are wonderfully fluffy, then beat in the egg and vanilla.
Add in the pumpkin and mix thoroughly.
Sift all your dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
Slowly add in the flour mixture into the wet and once combined, add in the cranberries and coconut or walnuts. I made mine coconut only since no one but little ol' me likes walnuts in cookies. The coconut was fabulous and added a nice crunch.
Drop by rounded tablespoonful onto a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet.
Cook at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, until they are lovely little pumpkin cakes, just waiting to be eaten. For a cakey cookie, these were surprisingly good and something I definitely will make again.
