Pumpkin "Muffies"

I made these with the intention of them being a cookie but their texture reminded me of those muffies that you can get at Panera.  The texture was more cakey than cookie--it was a nice surprise!

  2 cups sugar
1 cup butter, softened
2 eggs
1/4 t. salt
1 T. vanilla
1 cup mashed pumpkin
2 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
4-5 cups of flour (enough to make firm)
2 T. cinnamon
1 cup buttermilk

Cream together first 5 ingredients; add pumpkin and set aside.  Mix the dry ingredients together and then slowly combine with pumpkin mixture.  Add buttermilk and mix.  Add flour until batter is firm enough to hold a peak.  Drop by spoonfuls and bake for 12-15 minutes.
