Iced Pumpkin Cookies
Turned out perfectly: the cookies are light, sort of cake-like. I frosted about 2/3 of them and left the remaining third for people who don't like frosting. The frosting had a few lumps in it: I will try whisking the milk into the sugar next time.

Pumpkin Fudge
I've made over 150 batches of fudge in my lifetime because my mom prohibited candy in the house, so I learned to make my own. What I've learned is 1) cook fudge too long, and it becomes like cement 2) cook fudge too little, and you get toffee. I followed the directions for this recipe, and I used a candy thermometer, a timer, and a cold cup of water to test the cooking time. Drop the mixture into the cold cup of water to test to see if it makes a soft ball. I panicked, though, when the timer went off at 18 minutes but the thermometer wasn't at soft ball stage yet, so I let it cook another 4 minutes. It was probably fine at 19 minutes because a drop in the cold water made a soft ball. Make sure to stir every 30 seconds to a minute so it doesn't burn on the bottom. I've never made fudge that instructed me to put the marshmellow cream in the pan while it was boiling, but I followed the directions, and it was ok. I also waited a bit before spooning it into the pan because it was still runny. The result: a good batch of pumpkin flavored fudge!
