Pumpkin Cookies with Frosting

Pumpkin Cookies with Frosting

These cookies are delicious.  I added a cup and half of chocolate chips and a 1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice to them and ommitted the nuts.  The texture is more along the lines of an applesauce cookie, it's a fluffy, soft and light cookie.  Since I added the chocolate chips I opted not to make the frosting, but I'm sure that would be good too.

Cookies:
1 cup butter, room temp
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 cup chopped nuts, optional

Frosting:
3 TB butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
1-2 cups powdered sugar

For the cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream together the butter and sugars until fluffy.  Blend in the pumpkin, egg and vanilla.  Add flour, soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nuts and mix.  Drop by the TB onto an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Cool before frosting.

For the frosting:  In a medium saucepan, heat together the butter and brown sugar until bubbly.  Cook, stirring constantly, for one minute.  Beat in milk and blend in the powdered sugar to spreading consistency.  Frost cooled cookies.
