    1 cup  Butter, softened
    2/3 cup firmly packed light  brown sugar
    1/3 cup sugar
    1 cup mashed cooked pumpkin
    1 Large egg
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    2 cups all-purpose plain flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 cup chopped  English walnuts

    Frosting For Your Cookies

    2 cups powdered sugar
    1/4 cup  Butter, softened
    1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
    Fine chopped English Walnuts

    Heat oven to 350°F.

    Combine butter, brown sugar and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Beat, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in 1 cup finely chopped  walnuts.

    Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough, 2 inches apart, onto un greased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool completely before you do anything with your cookies.

    Combine all frosting ingredients except walnut pieces in medium bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until smooth. Frost cooled cookies. Garnish with walnuts, if desired.

    You will come out a lot better with your cookies if you use a new or light colored baking pan. If you use a dark colored baking pan your cookies may burn.

    Be sure to use regular canned pumpkin in this recipe and drain as much of the liquid out of it as possible.

    I hope if you make these delicious cookies that you will come back and tell us all how they turned out for you.

      Why? You could have made it a wonderful hub with more images. It is very interesting and amazing. I don't know how it will be tasting!!! But I like the idea and the image is tasting great.
      I hope this walnut is similar to our "velaga Kaya" or "velagapandu". And we make tasty chutneys with it. The pulp is eaten as it is also and tastes good.

      This sounds really tasty crazyhorsesghost and thanks for sharing it. I like pumpkin and walnuts and cream cheese icing, it all sounds like a very complimentary group of ingredients. You have any Gingersnap cookie recipes?

    And another one... how good this looks. My daughter loves to bake. I am going to email her this recipe and let her make it. How fun. Thanks!

      Thanks. Let me know how they turn out for her. These are really good. I'm making tons of cookies right now to fill up the gift boxes I give out to family and friends at Thanksgiving and Christmas. I bake and freeze a lot of them until I get ready to fill up the gift boxes. Thanks for your comment. It is appreciated.

    Is this the right word for walnut? आखरोट

      Yes, you are correct. I enquired it from my son for our Indian name and he told me it is akhrot some hours before.

      He eats it breaking and consuming the inner seed which is just like cashew nut or almond, he says.
