Pumpkin Cookies With Drizzled Glaze

“I found this recipe on the web years ago and don't remember the website. This is a great small cookie with glaze drizzled on instead of a traditional icing. This is my favorite cookie recipe and thank goodness my DH likes Chocolate Chip better. I make sure if I am making a batch of these I make a batch of Chocolate Chip for my DH so I can have the pumpkin cookies all to myself.”
