I got this recipe from my friend, Tracey Gooding, and it is fabulous and easy!  Will be a regular in my countdown from now on.

Tracey's Pumpkin Cookies
1 c. pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
1/2 c. Butter-flavor Crisco
1 stick margarine, softened
1 c. sugar
1 egg
2 c. flour
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. soda
1 t. salt

Cream 1st 4 ingredients.  Add egg and beat well.  Combine flour, cinnamon, soda and salt and add to pumpkin mixture.  Mix well.  Drop by rounded teaspoonful onto baking stone or greased cookie sheet.  Bake 10-12 min. at 375.  Top warm cookies with Browned Butter Frosting.

Browned Butter Frosting
3 T. butter (I used margarine)
4 t. milk
1/2 c. brown sugar
1 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla

Melt butter, brown sugar and milk in medium saucepan over low heat. Just melt, do not cook - trust me!  Beat in powdered sugar and vanilla until smooth.  *Note: I was having a witching hour moment (i.e. all hell breaking loose with phone, kids, etc.) while I was making the frosting.  It started to boil and then when I added the p. sugar and vanilla, it was way too thick.  I just put it back on the stove, added some milk and stirred until it was syrupy again.  I then added powdered sugar in small increments until it was just right.  Very forgiving recipe :-).
