Frosted Pumpkin Cookies (not to be mistaken for sugar cookies)

Frosted Pumpkin Cookies

Around the holidays, I just love trying and testing a variety of cookie recipes. Most turn out great, while others just kind of fall flat. There are some recipes however, that are must-haves, and we repeat them often. This recipe for Frosted Pumpkin Cookies is one of our keepers that we have been making for years. Lotsa sweetness!
Frosted Pumpkin Cookies

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups pumpkin (about 1 15 oz can)
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butterscotch chips

Frosting:
3 tbs butter
4 tsp milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 tsp vanilla
 

Mix first 7 ingredients until smooth. Stir in butterscotch chips. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375* for 10-12 minutes. For frosting: dissolve first three ingredients in saucepan. Cool, then stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. Frost cookies while still hot. Makes about 3 dozen.
