My local radio station runs a holiday cookie exchange and this recipe sounds great.

- Cream together butter and sugars, then blend until light and fluffy. Add pumpkin pie mix, eggs, water, vanilla and orange zest to creamed butter and sugar mixture. In a separate bowl, mix flour, soda and salt. Add in stages to the wet mixture. Fold in the butterscotch chips and pecan pieces.
- Chill dough at least 2 hours or until firm.
- When ready to bake place rounded teaspoons of dough on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 375F for 10 - 12 minutes.
My husband bought way too much pumpkin pie mix, and since we couldn't imagine eating one more pumpkin pie, I thought I'd try these cookies. Everyone in my family really loved them. They turned out kind of puffy with a cake-like texture. They aren't too sweet, so you definitely need the butterscotch chips. I omitted the orange zest and pecans since I didn't have them.
