  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the 1/2 cup of butter and white sugar. Add pumpkin, egg, and 1 teaspoon vanilla to butter mixture, and beat until creamy. Mix in dry ingredients. Drop on cookie sheet by tablespoonfuls; flatten slightly.
  3. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool cookies, then drizzle glaze with fork.

If you’re not much of a baker, don’t fret. You can still get your kitchen smelling fresh with Cardamom Pear Muffin, Hot Apple Pie, Pumpkin Cider Donut, or Warm Cinnamon Buns candles and wax melts. Welcome any guests with that warm, fall feeling.
