Iced Pumpkin Cookies

This recipe is one of the few sweet recipes Mr.Picky requests.  It isn’t fall or hunting season without a fresh batch of Iced Pumpkin Cookies.  His sister would send batch after batch up hunting with him and his father.  When I married Mr.Picky this became my job.  I never did get the exact recipe she uses because she combines a few she found.  So I did the same and Mr.Picky is happy with what I came up with.

Iced pumpkin cookies are not too sweet and most of the sweetness comes from the light icing.  The spicy cake-like texture is something unique to these cookies.  They also taste amazing for breakfast with coffee.
