Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup canola or olive oil
1 cup canned pumpkin purée (not pie filling)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup butterscotch chips
½ cup raisins

Directions

  1. Heat the oven to 325°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, coat the paper with butter, and set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl, and set aside.
  3. Place the eggs and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Mix on on medium speed until smooth and lightened in color, about 1 minute. Stop the mixer and using a rubber spatula, scrape down the sides of the bowl and paddle. Turn the mixer to low speed, add the oil, pumpkin, and vanilla, and mix until evenly blended. Add the flour mixture, and mix until just incorporated. Add in the butterscotch chips and mix until evenly distributed.
  4. Using an ice cream scoop with a 1/4-cup capacity, scoop mounds of the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the cookies at least 2 1/2 inches apart (alternatively, you can use a 1/4-cup measuring cup). Using a thin metal spatula, smooth the tops of the mounds.
  5. Bake the cookies one sheet at a time until the tops feel firm and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry, about 16 minutes. Cool them on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then use a wide metal spatula to transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Icing
3 Tbs Butter
4 tsp Milk
½ Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Confection Sugar
¾ t Vanilla

  1. Combine butter, milk and brown sugar in sauce pan. Cook until sugar dissolves. Let cool a little and then add confection sugar and vanilla.
  2. Frost cookies while they are hot! (The icing may get a little hard if sitting out for a bit. Just reheat to soften).

**These are also great with cream cheese frosting =)
