Delicious! Everyone loves them!! I just have a word of advice for those who are making them for the first time. You have to sort of help the cookies take their shape. When you are dropping them on the baking sheet, their will be a pointy tip on each cookie that will still be there once they are baked. Just take the bottom of a clean spoon and gently press on the top of each cookie as soon as they come out of the oven. This will give the icing more of a surface to lay on.

I am an expert pumpkin bread maker, but never made pumpkin cookies until now. I was skeptical.. but am now a believer! Goodness! I might just like these MORE than pupkin bread! They are similar to little cakes. Just AMAZINGly moist. The only diff. was I also added about 1/2 tsp. allspice. I always bake on silicone treated baker's parchment paper. Turned out AMAZING! I got my icing to look like the picture by adding about 1 c. more powdered sugar.. and make the frosting first. It really needs to cool. I turned over my cookies and dipped the tops in the icing.. Trying to drizzle over the cookies was way too messy!

This is the most incredible soft cookie. Sooo delicious, even better than pumpkin pie. I pour the glaze into a squeeze bottle for ease and speed in glazing these little gems. Then I just drizzle the glaze on top. This recipe makes lots and lots of cookies.
