Incredible Pumpkin Cookies

I needed to make some cookies for some friends and I wanted to try something new. I found this pumpkin cookie recipe and fell in love. It is amazing! The frosting is so creamy and tastes like caramel. It is such a yummy combination with the pumpkin. The original recipe made a ton of cookies, so I cut it in half. It still made 3 dozen.

  • 1 cups shortening
  • 1 cups white sugar
  • 1 cups canned pumpkin
  • 1 eggs
  • 1 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

Frosting Ingredients:
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoons vanilla extract

  1. Cream shortening, white sugar and pumpkin. Add eggs and mix well. Sift together the baking soda, ground cinnamon, salt and flour. Add to pumpkin mixture and mix well.
  2. Drop from spoon to cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. To Make Frosting: Cook butter, milk, and brown sugar until dissolved. Cool and add confectioners' sugar and vanilla. Drizzle over warm cookies.
