Glazed Pumpkin Cookies

Happy first day of fall!!  I love absolutely everything about this season -- admiring the bright colors, breathing in the crisp mountain air in the mornings, trading out my flip flops and swim suits for boots and sweaters, watching football games, and enjoying pumpkin-flavored everything!  

By the way...  Apparently these exist now.

Perfect for dunking in your Pumpkin Spice latte while enjoying the aroma of your Pumpkin Spice Yankee candle and cuddling with your Pumpkin Spice dog...

To get into the fall spirit, I baked some yummy pumpkin cookies this week!  They are super soft and taste just like little pies.

Adding the glaze


Glazed Pumpkin Cookies


1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup pureed pumpkin
1 medium egg
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup bilk
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2.  Prepare the cookies: Cream the butter and sugar in a large bowl.  Add pumpkin and egg and beat well.

3.  In a separate large bowl, sift together remaining dry ingredients and vanilla.  Add to pumpkin mixture, beating to blend.

4.  Shape dough into 1-inch balls and flatten into cookie shapes.  Place on a baking sheet and bake until light golden, 9-11 minutes.  Remove and cool.

5.  Meanwhile, prepare the icing: Combine brown sugar, milk, and butter in a small saucepan.  Bring to a boil, then remove from heat.  Whisk in sugar and vanilla until smooth.

6.  When cookies are slightly cooled, generously glaze the icing over the tops and allow to cool completely before serving.
