Pumpkin cookies (2 WW pts w/ frosting)

I’ve decided to jump on the bandwagon of baking with pumpkin. I made Pumpkin Bars earlier and we both loved them (and the coworkers too!) so I figured I’d give pumpkin another shot in a cookie form.I made these cookies for hubby to take to work. I tried one and they’re quite tasty. They are very cakey which I like in a cookie. I’d definitely make them again soon.

Pumpkin Cookies (from Allrecipes.com) – makes 36 – 1 WW pt without frosting, 2 with frosting
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour - I use King Arthurs White Whole Wheat 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

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt; set aside.

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.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool cookies, then drizzle glaze with fork.

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