Pumpkin Cookies

These pumpkin cookies are amazing. I am trying to figure out why my friend was hiding this recipe from me for so long. The brown sugar icing is heavenly. Even if you don't love pumpkin, you will like these. The cookie is soft and has a slight pumpkin taste with a hint of cinnamon. I can't wait to make these again.

1 c shortening
1 c sugar
1 c pumpkin
1 egg
2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt

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

Cream shortening and sugar. Add pumpkin and mix. Add egg and mix. Add dry ingredients and mix. Spoon onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes. Place cookies on a cooling rack

In a small saucepan, cook butter, milk and brown sugar on low until dissolved. Cool slightly and add powdered sugar and vanilla. Spoon on top of cookies.
