    teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1
    cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1/4

    cup raisins, if desired
  • 1
    cup Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting

    On cookie sheet, drop dough by generous tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart.

    Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until set and light golden brown around edges. Cool 1 to 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes. Frost with frosting. Store loosely covered.

  • 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.
