Pumpkin Cookies

We tried another fall recipe today, and it received rave reviews by everyone. These cookies are like a portable pumpkin cake. I adapted this recipe from a Food Network recipe.

1 stick of butter, softened
1 1/4 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream the softened butter and sugar together with a mixer. 

Add the pumpkin, egg, and vanilla. Beat until mixed. 

In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. 

Add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture. Stir with a spoon until combined. 

Drop rounded tablespoons on a greased cookie sheet. 

Bake at 375 degrees for 11-12 minutes. 

After baking, move cookies to a cooling rack. Let cookies cool for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar with 1 tablespoon milk. Spread the glaze over the cookies.
