Pumpkin Spiced and Iced Cookies

On Tuesday I made these cookies for our preschool Thanksgiving Feast. Yum. YUMMY.

The other week ago, when my neighbor, Aleisha, made them for us, I ate all of them myself. I didn't share with anyone. That's why my kids call me the COOKIE MONSTER. (And I have the shirt to prove it!)

I found the recipe here. Eat up!

I have to admit that I messed up on the directions. I mixed the butter and sugar in with the flour mixture before I was supposed to. Happily, everything turned out. Also, I melted already made frosting for the drizzle instead of making it.

Pumpkin Spiced and Iced Cookies
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 can (15 oz.) LIBBY'S® 100% Pure Pumpkin
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups (12-oz. pkg.) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
1 cup chopped walnuts
VANILLA GLAZE (recipe below)

Directions:PREHEAT oven to 375° F. Grease baking sheets. COMBINE flour, pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter and sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in pumpkin, eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto prepared baking sheets. BAKE for 15 to 20 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Drizzle or spread with Vanilla Glaze. FOR VANILLA GLAZE: COMBINE 1 cup powdered sugar, 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons milk and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract in small bowl; mix well.

Great idea Kendra!
