Iced Pumpkin Spice Cookies Recipe

Every fall I try to make this iced pumpkin spice cookies recipe.  These pumpkin cookies are so delicious, and I love their texture!  Any time I give them to people, they ask for the recipe, so I thought I would share it with all of you.  Seriously, they are the best!

This recipe is really easy.  Just make sure you use pureed pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling.  Although I think I did that once, and just left out the spices.  They didn’t turn out as good, but they still worked.

I like my icing to be extra thick, but you can make it whatever consistency you want. Sometimes I even double the icing recipe if I want them to be extra sweet.

Dear Jessica, Many thanks for your lovely newsletter. You write the perfect blog, if I may say! You describe clearly and concisely, not too many photos (it drives me mad, looking for the text in among beautiful and artistic photos!), and just a touch of the personal - Yes, we do want to know how you are and what you are thinking. I loved the video on embroidering lettering. Just long enough to clarify, Not long enough to become boring. I always look forward to hearing from you. All the best, Kate
