Tasty Tuesday: Iced Pumpkin Cookies

With Halloween this week I've been craving all things pumpkin. These cake-like pumpkin spiced cookies with a simple buttercream icing are my latest obsession and definitely a must for your Halloween celebrations with the addition of some candy decorations or orange sprinkles. The best part is these cookies are extremely easy to make so you can spend more time perfecting your costume and less time in the kitchen. Happy Halloween!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies (adapted from What Megan's Making)
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter (softened)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
For the glaze:
2 cups confectioners' sugar
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a small bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.
In a medium bowl cream together the butter and sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients until just combined (don't over mix). Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly with a glass sprayed with cooking spray.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until cookies are set and sides are just beginning to brown.
To Make Glaze: Mix together all ingredients in a small bowl. Add milk as needed, to make a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled cookies.
