Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat granulated sugar, brown sugar, 3/4 cup butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed, scraping bowl occasionally, until well blended. Beat in pumpkin and eggs until well mixed. On low speed, beat in flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  • 2 On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls.
  • 3 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until almost no indentation remains when touched in center. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 45 minutes.
  • 4 In medium bowl, place powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 3 tablespoons milk. In 1-quart saucepan, heat 1/3 cup butter over medium heat, stirring constantly, just until light brown.
  • 5 Pour browned butter over powdered sugar mixture. Beat on low speed about 1 minute or until smooth. Gradually add just enough of the remaining 1 tablespoon milk to make frosting creamy and spreadable. Generously frost cooled cookies.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Spice up these cookies by adding 1/8 teaspoon each ground cloves and ground ginger with the flour.

Instead of making Browned Butter Frosting, use a 1-pound container of Betty Crocker® Rich & Creamy dulce de leche (caramel) frosting.
