Instructions
Pumpkin Spice Cookies
  1. ♦ Combine butter, brown sugar and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed until fluffy.
    ♦ Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Beat until well blended.
    ♦ Add flour, spices, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix well.
    ♦ Stir in walnuts.
  2. ♦ Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets.
    ♦ Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until set. Cool. Frost. Enjoy.
Mom Burnett's Brown Butter Icing
  1. ♦ In a small, heavy bottomed saucepan, carefully brown the butter over medium-high heat.
    ♦ Butter will melt, separate and then begin to foam – keep swirling the pan until the foam begins to turn a caramel color. Immediately take it off the heat and stir in powdered sugar, cream and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
    ♦ Frost cookies with warm frosting for best results, just spoon a dollop of frosting on each cookie. If frosting begins to get stiff, heat just a bit or add a drop of cream.
  2. ♦ Sprinkle frosted cookies with chopped walnuts.
Terri's Notes

~ Pumpkin Spice fans, here’s one more reason to rejoice!
~ ‘Soft’ cookies like Grama made.
~ Cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice can be replaced with 1½ tsp. Pumpkin Spice.
~ The secret’s in the frosting! Browning the butter turns these little pumpkins into something delightful.
