A perfect day for a cookie~


You ever have one of those weekends full of plans but then all of a sudden everything is canceled???

The weather was not cooperating this weekend. So in midst of thinking it was going to be {busy}...it ended up quite slow! So I was reading a few blogs and this BLOG posted a wonderful recipe for pumpkin cookies. She passed them out and put cute tags on them. She is VERY creative!

Since I didn't have much to do and I had all the ingredients...I made them! My cookies were gone before I could put them on a plate let alone make a tag for them!

They were wonderful!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

* 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 teaspoon baking powder
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/2 cup butter, softened
* 1 1/2 cups white sugar
* 1 cup canned pumpkin puree
* 1 egg
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 2 cups confectioners' sugar
* 3 tablespoons milk
* 1 tablespoon melted butter
* 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


DIRECTIONS

2. In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.

4. To Make Glaze: Combine confectioners' sugar, milk, 1 tablespoon melted butter, and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add milk as needed, to achieve drizzling consistency.
