Iced Pumpkin Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup pureed cooked pumpkin
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon salt


1/2 cup brown sugar
¼ cup milk
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 teaspoon of vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl. Add pumpkin and egg and beat well. In a separate large bowl, sift together remaining dry ingredients. Add to pumpkin mixture, beating well to blend.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls and flatten into cookie shapes. Place on parchment-covered backing sheet
and bake until light golden, 9 to 11 minutes. Remove and cool.


Combine brown sugar, milk, and butter in a small saucepan; bring to a boil and remove from heat. Whisk in sugar and vanilla until smooth. When cookies are slightly cooled, generously glaze the icing over the tops and allow to cool completely before serving.
