Glazed Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Need a seasonal, delicious treat that both adults and kids will love? These cookies would be perfect - they are delightfully soft and cake-like, with a sweet glaze. Lots of autumn spices and pumpkin put you in an autumnal mood; are there any leaf piles left to jump in at your house? Miraculously, we are having some semi-warm days here in the north, but still chilly enough to fire up the oven and do some baking. This is a great recipe to make with the kids - and eat with them, too!

Glazed Pumpkin Spice Cookies

2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. ground cloves
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 Tbsp. milk
1 egg
1 - 15 oz. can pureed pumpkin

2 cups powdered sugar
3 Tbsp. milk

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, pumpkin pie spice, and cloves. Set aside.

Using an electric mixer, in a large bowl, beat melted butter, sugar and brown sugar on medium speed until combined. Add egg, pumpkin and milk and beat on medium until combined, scraping sides of bowl as needed. With the mixer on low, slowly add the flour mixture and beat until mixed.

With a large cookie scoop, scoop dough onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until cookies are puffy and edges are JUST starting to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes on the sheet before removing to cooling racks.

Once cookies are cool, whisk together powdered sugar and milk. Dip cookies in glaze and then set on wire racks to dry. Makes about 3 dozen large cookies
