Glazed Pumpkin Cookies

Happy Thanksgiving!!! Take some time today to remember what you're thankful for, including some damn good food. And then think about making these :) you'll be thankful for them!

These are super simple to whip up and completely delicious- good pumpkin flavor, etc. I hope you give them a shot! This recipe is heavily based on Libby's classic recipe, but I've made a few tweaks, so here are the pictures and recipe!

Here's the batter...

And the cookies all ready for the oven...

And all baked up!

-1 cup pumpkin
-1 egg
-1 teaspoon vanilla
-2 1/2 cups flour

-1 teaspoon baking powder
-1 teaspoon cinnamon
-1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg (I used freshly grated)
-1/4 teaspoon salt
Cream the butter and sugar, then mix in the pumpkin, egg, and vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients.
Bake at 350 F for 15-17 minutes on greased baking sheets or parchment paper.
Let cool completely before glazing.

-2 tablespoons milk
-2 teaspoons melted butter
