DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375°; to make the cookies—in a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt, allspice, cinnamon, and ginger; set aside.
  • In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar until evenly combined.
  • Add in the eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla; beat well.
  • Add the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly; stir in the walnuts.
  • Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets, leaving several inches between for expansion.
  • *The batter will seem extremely soft compared with most cookie doughs, but it will firm up during baking.
  • Bake for 12 minutes; cool the cookies on the sheets for 10-12 minutes, then removed to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • To make the frosting: add sugar, milk, and vanilla to a bowl; set aside.
  • In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, cook the butter until lightly browned, about 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  • Remove from the heat, add to the other ingredients and beat until smooth and creamy; cover until ready to use.
  • When the cookies are completely cool, spread a generous amount of frosting on each cookie, and top with a walnut half.
  • Let icing set before stacking the cookies or they will stick together.
