Fold in the white chocolate chips

Mix the pumpkin pie spice and demerara sugar together in a small bowl

Place about a tablespoon heap of the cookie dough onto a baking tray, spread evenly apart so they don't cook into each other

Sprinkle each ball of dough with a little of the spice and sugar mix

Push 2 or 3 pecans on the top of the cookie
