Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

My dear friend Lisa gave me this recipe.  It’s a very unique cookie recipe and so yummy.  They are decadent and very soft—almost like eating cake!

1 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1 cup pumpkin
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips

Beat butter and sugar until creamy.  Add pumpkin and egg, mix well.  In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.  Gradually add to pumpkin mixture, mix with mixer.  If dough gets too stiff, stir by hand.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes or until set.  Drizzle icing on top of warm cookies.

3 tablespoons butter
4 teaspoons milk
½ cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup powdered sugar
¾ teaspoons vanilla

Cook first 3 ingredients over low-medium heat until melted.  Add powdered sugar and vanilla.  Beat well.
