Pumpkin Cookies

I made soft pumpkin cookies tonight!  Let me share the recipe with you.  The ingredient amounts are at the bottom of this post.

Step 1. In a medium bowl, combine the dry ingredients: flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.  Set aside.

Step 2. Beat sugar and butter in large mixer bowl until well blended.

Step 3. Beat in pumpkin, egg and vanilla extract into sugar/butter mixture until smooth.

That looks a little unappetizing, but the end result is delicious!  You must trust the Project Board.

Step 4. Gradually beat in flour mixture.

Step 5. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheet.

Bake 15 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 6. For the glaze, combine 2 cups sifted powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons milk, 1 tablespoon melted butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in small bowl until smooth.

Step 7.  After 15 minutes, take cookies out of the oven and allow them to cool on wax paper or cookie rack.

Step 8. Apply the glaze.

Here’s the full recipe:
