Soft Pumpkin Cookies

Once fall hits I love having an excuse to make any and everything pumpkin! Today I just felt like spoiling my boys so I decided on this sweet treat. If you have a can of pumpkin on hand you have no reason NOT to make these cookies (most the of the other ingredients are typical staples in anyone's pantry). You won't mind the delicious fall smell that takes over your house either! :)

2/3 cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup butter, softened
½ cup pumpkin puree
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
½ tsp salt
½ cup powdered sugar
1½ tbsp milk
1 tbsp maple syrup (you can omit if you do not have it on hand)

Step One
Heat oven to 350°.

Step Two
Beat the sugars (granulated & brown) & butter on medium speed until mixed together.

Step Three
Add in pumpkin & eggs and beat on low speed until combined.

Step Four
On low speed, blend in your flour, baking soda and spices until all combined.

Step Five
Drop by the tablespoon full on an ungreased cookie sheet (should make approximately 2 dozen).
Cook for 10-12 minutes or until slightly browned.

Step Six
Remove cookies and let cool on wire rack for at least 30 minutes.

Step Seven
In a small mixing bowl, stir together your powdered sugar, milk and syrup to make a light icing.

Step Eight
Pour into a small ziplock bag (or piping bag if you have one) and drizzle over the cookies.

Enjoy, y'all!
