Great recipe. Not overly sweet, just right and the pumpkin spice added to the icing definitely adds to the flavor. On my second batch, I added just a bit more pumpkin and they seemed better. I followed the advice to swap and rotate the pans. I did get more than 36 cookies out of the batch using a small cookie scoop. The kids loved them for Halloween!
Made as written except used part vegetable shortening and part butter. Tender cookies with a slightly crisp outside. These do need the icing for an extra hit of spice. I don’t have pumpkin pie spice so used 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and 1/4 tsp each of cloves and ginger in the cookie batter. Could have used a bit more, although the flavour might develop as the cookies age. Used only cinnamon in the icing glaze.
I like that these aren't too sweet.
