pumpkin cookies

This is not a thanksgiving dessert, but it is fallish, so I thought I'd post it.

1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup pumpkin (not one can ;D)
2 cups flour
1tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp.nutmeg
1/2 tsp. ginger

Cream shortening and sugar together. Beast eggs and pumpkin together. Mix and stir. Add dry ingredients and stir until smooth. Drop by teaspoon 2" apart on a greased baking sheat. Bake at 375* for about 10 minutes.

Frosting: (I always double this recipe, because there is never enough if you don't)
this is not the doubled version.
3 Tbls. Butter
4 tsp. milk
1/2 cup brown suger.
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
Melt butter, milk and brown sugar until dissolved. Cool. Add vanilla and powdered sugar. Blend well. Frost warm cookies or dunk them.

Mmm! Mmm!
Blessings!

Elissa, could you think about making your font 'color' a bit darker? It's a bit difficult to read on the mint green.

Just a thought....
