Iced Pumpkin Cookies

In celebration of the arrival of fall, my Mom and I made our Iced Pumpkin cookies on Sunday. We’ve made them every year in October for the past 7 years and I must say they were quite the confectionery delight. Notice I said “were”…;)

I took home 2 dozen cookie and now they are all gone 😦 I would eat one for breakfast, one after lunch and one right after dinner so they didn’t last very last long around me. I also shared them with with my co-workers so that helped out too. But I know that I did the most damage to that batch at home since my boyfriend isn’t a big fan of pumpkin – too bad for him but good for me! 🙂

I posted the recipe for you below. It is very simple and oh-so-worth it!
