Spiced and Iced Pumpkin Cookies

It is October..and in this house that means all things pumpkin.  If you like pumpkin like I do, the next month will be chock full of yummy pumpkin recipes.  Today I baked these cookies,,,pumpkiny (is that a word?) spicy and covered with a luscious cream cheese and cinnamon frosting.  They are a little crunchy on the edges and soft in the middle..almost cake like.  Perfect with a cup of chai tea!
This recipe only makes 24 cookies, but they are a little on the large size.

1/2 c. butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 c. canned pumpkin puree
1 egg
Beat these ingredients until well combined.  Then add in
2 1/2 c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. cloves
Beat again until mixed together.  Drop by tablespoon on a greased cooky sheet.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.

While they are cooling, make the icing:
 Beat together
1/4 c. butter
1/4 c. (2 Oz.) cream cheese
1/2 t. vanilla
Then beat in
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar

Frost cookies with icing when totally cool.
