I've been waiting for autumn to come just so that I could make these cookies! The glaze is definitely what makes these so fabulous. It's a butter and brown sugar glaze and it's delicious.
Thanks to my sister, Melanie, for sharing the recipe.
Pumpkin Glazed Cookies:
1 c. shortening or butter (I use butter)
1 c. sugar
1 c. pumpkin (cooked and mushed or from a can)
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
Cream together the shortening, sugar, and pumpkin. Add egg and mix well. Combine all dry ingredients and add to wet. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 min. Do not overbake!
6 Tbsp. butter
4 tsp. milk
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. powdered sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
When you put the 1st batch of cookies in the oven to bake, cook butter, milk and brown sugar in a saucepan until the sugar is dissolved. Place saucepan in the fridge to cool. When cookies come out of the oven, put them on the cooling rack. Then, finish the glaze by stirring in powdered sugar and vanilla. Spoon generously over warm cookies. Yum!
Hope you give these a try and love them as much as I do!
