Pumpkin Cookies

Cassidy especially loves these cookies, she's our pumpkin-anything fanatic.  I got this recipe from our longtime friend, Rob Moss.  We're still baking up these tasty treats, 20-something years after Rob shared this recipe with me.  

3/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 cup pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups sifted flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp allspice
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup dates or raisins (optional)
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
Icing (recipe to follow)

Cream butter and sugar together.  Add eggs, pumpkin and vanilla; mix well.  In a separate bowl combine flour, soda and salt; mix well.  Add to pumpkin mixture.  Add the remaining ingredients: mix well.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.  Ice while cookies are hot.

3 tbsp butter
3 tbsp milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup powdered sugar

Boil over medium-high heat butter, milk and brown sugar.  Let cook.  Let cool.  Stir in powdered sugar.
