Glazed Soft Pumpkin Cookies

"I got this recipe from the Chicago Sun Times. A couple of families were going to a corn maze and I brought these along. They were a hit! They were the perfect fall dessert. These cookies are very soft. My husband doesn't like chewy cookies but when we referred to them as little breads, he loved them."

    Excellent recipe, my family scarfed them down quicker than I could get them out of the oven and off the pan. Very moist as I took the advice of another reviewer and added in a bit more pumpkin than called for. I also added 3/4 of an 8oz bar of cream cheese to the glaze and it was delicious! Making another batch of these tonight!!! Perfect on a fall night with a nice cup of hot tea!!

    These tasty cookies are the best! Everybody has been waiting since last year for me to pop these awesome little bad boys out again. GREAT! Just wish that the glaze would set a little harder and faster.

    These turned out great. Adjustments: Used wheat flour. That means the cookies have a more rustic look. Terrific taste. Also used a pure cane sugar that was not white granulated. Last, using convection bake in the gas oven, at 13 minutes the cookies were done. I did glaze them. Will make more at Thanksgiving

    Flour - wheat. Sugar, a rough cane type. Convection bake only took 13 min.
