Legendary Pumpkin Cookies via In Praise of Leftovers

{In Praise of Leftovers}
This will be my third Fall making these glorious cookies. Normally when I post a recipe, even if it's inspired/based on another blog or cook book's recipe, I tweak it so much that I have to add all of my changes for you. Not these. Follow this recipe VERBATIM. All thanks goes directly to The Leftoverist. I'm just a follower, copying these babies from her notebook year after year :)

Whisk together dry Ingredients:
2 C flour, 1 ts baking soda, 1 ts cinnamon, 1/2 ts salt, 1/2 ts nutmeg

Wet Ingredients:
1 C of each butter, pumpkin, sugar. Blend/cream. Then add 1 egg.

add wet to dry, stir with a wooden spoon.

Top with Icing:
in a small saucepan, combine the 1/2 C brown sugar, 3 tb butter, and 3 ts milk over low heat until sugar is dissolved.  

let cool, then whisk in 1 C powdered sugar until smooth.
