Pumpkin anyone??

So today I thought I would play in the kitchen, holidays are coming and Might as well get to it.
I decided to play with the challenge and test it out...that we will discuss at the proper time, but
in between I decided to try a recipe I found on line. It came from It was for a
Pumpkin Cookie with Carmel Icing. They were a pretty big hit so far, I am too tired to eat at
the moment, but I fully intend to test them out, and they are going to both jobs this week lol.
I figured I would inclued the recipe as well, as it was super easy, my only suggestiong is when
you get to the icing, don't let it cool too long as it gets harder to spread.
Pumpkin cookies with Carmel Icing
2 cups shortening
2 cups white sugar
1 can canned pumpkin
2 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp salt
4 cups all purpose flour
6 tblsp butter
8 tblsp milk
2 cups confectioners' sugar
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup brown sugar
Cream shortening, white sugar, and pumpkin. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well. Sift together the baking soda, ground cinnamon, salt and flour. Add to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Drop from spoon to cookie sheet. (you do need to shape them a bit as they don't spread out). Bake for 10-12 min at 350 degrees F.
Cook butter, milk and brown sugar until dissolved. Cool sligtly and add confectioners sugar and vanilla. Spread on to cookies.
see soo very simple, and apparently tasty lol.
Ok That is it for now, have been in the kitchen for over 5 hrs tonight and I am a bit tired, so time to relax a bit, enjoy the recipe =)
