Pumpkin Frost Cookies
There is something comforting about the combination of pumpkin, cinnamon and sugar.  For me they are the flavors of fall. This recipe is simple with an elegant twist.  It makes a terrific afternoon snack and delightful addition to a desert table.

Pumpkin Frost Cookies

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Combine flour, Russian Mulling Spice, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 Tsp vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by the spoonful.  You can flatten slightly or leave in pumpkin shaped balls. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool cookies, then decorate with glaze and or sprinkles.

To Make Glaze: Combine confectioners' sugar, milk, 1 Tbsp melted butter, and Orange Vanilla Sugar. Add milk as needed, to achieve drizzling consistency.

Tried a "test batch" of these yesterday and THEY WERE A BIG HIT!

These cookies are substantial and delicious. (The hint of orange in the frosting was a superb addition.)

One member of the household -- a confirmed chocoholic -- even stated that she never thought she'd say it, but she enjoyed them even more than chocolate chip cookies!

This recipe will now be a family dessert staple.
