“These wonderful cookies have a mild pumpkin flavor, and are reminiscent of a spice cake. If you're not a fan of pumpkin pie spice, you can substitute cinnamon. The glaze is wonderful, and can be changed up by adding some maple extract to taste. I'm not real fond of pumpkin, but just love these cookies!”
