Fall Pumpkin Cookies

“I have been making this recipe since my kids were little. It uses canned pumpkin to make round brownish/orangish cookies which can be iced with a thin butter icing with an orange color. They look very much like little pumpkins and are great for a halloween party or a treat for Thanksgiving.”
