Pumpkin Cookies

1 Cup of Sugar

1 Can of Pumpkin

1/2 of shortening (I use margarine)

2 Cups of flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinammon

1/4 tsp salt

Bake at 375, 8-10 minutes

Frosting drizzle:

2 Cups Powder Sugar, 1 tsp Vanilla, 1-2 tsp milk, 1/4 Cup margarine

A few things I've learned about these cookies over the years!! The dough is pretty sticky and messy. I sort of just blob it into piles on the cookie sheet! And 375 is always wayyyyy too high for my oven!! It's more like 325, for about 6 minutes!! But that will just depend on your oven! The other thing is the frosting drizzle, well, I just put a little butter with the powder sugar, a little vanilla and add milk until it's runny enough but not too runny. And it's best to put it on while they are warm, then it runs off the sides nicely!!
