These cookies were not quite what I expected but they were excellent all the same. I had expected a flat cookie but I got a fluffy, dome-shaped cookies. I really liked both the cookie and the icing but the icing was a little too sweet for my taste. However, the browned butter and brown sugar mix did impart a nice flavour on these little bite-sized treats. I probably will not be making these often but that is simply because, while these are great cookies, frosted sweet cookies are not really my thing. I would, however, make them readily for someone who appreciates richer desserts.

These are wonderful! Great for Fall! I used walnuts instead of pecans. I think chilling the dough before baking helps them hold a better shape.

What a wonderful tasting cookie Anna. I loved the combo flavors of whitechocolate and pumpkin. I've never made that combination b/f in a cookie. I didn't add the nuts per family preference. The icing is the best part as far as I"m concerned, but I think these would be equally as wonderful w/o. I dropped by 1/4 cup full as I knew they wouldn't spread much and they didn't. Then I just kind of drizzled the glaze. Glad I tagged for MarchPhotoForum!!
