Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin Cookies

My friend Becky makes these cookies each Christmas and delivers them to her friends along with the recipe. I like how easy they are to make. They're like little cakes with a yummy browned butter icing. Enjoy!

1 C. shortening
1 C. sugar
1 C. pumpkin
1 egg
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
2-1/2 C. flour
1/2 t. salt

Mix ingredients all together; dough should be gooey, but not too gooey. Bake in a 375° oven for 12 to 14 minutes. Yields about 3 dozen cookies.

3 T. butter
1/2 C. brown sugar
4 t. milk
1 C. powdered sugar
3/4 t. vanilla

Heat butter, brown sugar, and milk on stove top until dissolved. Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. Ice cookies with warm icing.
