Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour

FROSTING:

  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoon milk
  • 2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • Chopped pecans for topping, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • 2
    Beat butter and sugar until well blended. Add pumpkin, egg, soda, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, vanilla and flour. Mix until well blended.
  • 3
    Using a 2-inch cookie scoop, drop into mounds at least 1-inch apart. Bake at 350° F for 12 - 15 minutes, until tops just start to brown. Cool completely on cooling rack.
  • 4
    FROSTING: Using a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add milk and brown sugar, stirring to dissolve sugar. Boil brown-sugar mixture for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add powdered sugar, stirring quickly until smooth.
  • 5
    Working quickly, swirl about 1 tbsp of frosting onto top of each cookie. If pecans are desired, sprinkle immediately, before frosting sets. If frosting becomes difficult to work with, add a tsp of water at a time to soften.
