The spicy aroma of home-baked cookies makes it almost impossible to not eat them warm from the oven. So, if you end up with extra frosting you'll know why.
If pumpkin pie spice isn't handy, use 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger instead.
You can add 1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts.
Sprinkle the tops of the frosted cookies with pumpkin pie spice or ground nutmeg for an extra flavor boost and a special look.
In place of the butter, you can use 1/4 cup vegetable oil.
