Iced Pumpkin Cookies
Original recipe makes 3 dozen
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt; set aside.
- In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.
- Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool cookies, then drizzle glaze with fork.
- To Make Glaze: Combine confectioners' sugar, milk, 1 tablespoon melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add milk as needed, to achieve drizzling consistency.
*** I added semi-sweet chocolate chips to half of my batch and still drizzled icing on top and those were the best for sure!***
I made Thanksgiving/Fall treat bags with these cookies and brought the rest into the office and they were a huge hit! They are perfect for any fall outing so make them and enjoy all the great things that are Fall.
