The Cast Of Old Fashioned Pumpkin Cookies
2 1/2 cups flour (I used my own pumpkin puree which has more liquid, so I needed 2 3/4 cups)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1 15 oz can of pumpkin puree or 1 2/3 cups of homemade pumpkin puree

Icing or Glaze (recipe at bottom)
Old Fashioned Pumpkin Cookie Directions
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease baking sheets.
2. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger and salt in medium bowl. Beat sugar and butter in large mixing bowl until well blended. Beat in pumpkin, egg and vanilla until smooth. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Drop by rounded tablespoons into prepared baking sheets ( I like the 35 mm cookie scoop which is equal to a tablespoon).
3. Bake for 12-15 minutes (baking times differ according to oven).
4. Cool on wire rack (or plates in my house) and drizzle with glaze.
Icing Or Glaze Recipe For Old Fashioned Pumpkin Cookies
The easiest way to ice these Old Fashioned Pumkin Cookies is to purchase a tub of icing and heat it for 30 -50 seconds in the microwave. Stir your icing well and you will be able to pour your icing on as a glaze at this point. If you stay closer to the 30 second mark you will be able to spread it on like icing and 50 seconds will allow you to drizzle the icing on.
If your looking for all homemade on the moist cookies combine 2 cups powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons milk, 1 tablespoon melted butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract in small bowl until smooth.
