Iced Pumpkin Cookies {w/ recipes}

I've taken these delicious pumpkin cookies to several different parties over the years and they are always a hit. They're not quite cookie texture - some people have called them scones since their shape is similar, but these are very moist and almost cake/bread like. They're not overly sweet, but still a perfect treat for a cool fall day. Drizzled with a little icing and they're not bad to look at either. 

 Iced Pumpkin Cookies {makes 20-24 cookies}
preheat oven to 350 degrees / 15 minutes


 2 1/2 c flour
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
2 t cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1/2 t cloves
1/2 t salt
1/2 c (1 stick) butter, softened
1 c sugar
1/2 c brown sugar
1 c canned pumpkin (1 cup)
1 egg
1 t vanilla

1 c powdered sugar
1 1/2 T milk
1/2 T butter (melted)
