Pumpkin Cookies

Two of my favorite things - cookies and pumpkin. You put them together and that sounds like a great fall treat. Thanks to Brooke for sending me this recipe. I can't wait to try these.

1 c shortening
1 c white sugar
1 c pumpkin
1 egg
2 c flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 c raisins, optional

3 tbsp butter
4 tsp milk
1/2 c brown sugar
1 c powdered sugar
1 tsp maple flavoring

Cookies- Cream shortening and sugar. Add pumpkin and mix. Add egg and mix well. Add dry ingredients and mix until well blended. Drop by spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Frosting- Melt butter over stove. Add milk and brown sugar until it dissolves. Remove from stove and add powdered sugar and maple flavoring. Spread over warm cookies.
