Ingredients:
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1 1/2 Cups Sugar

Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease 2 baking sheets.

Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt together in a bowl.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine sugar and butter until fully blended.  Mix in pumpkin, egg and vanilla.

Slowly add the flour mixture while mixing until just combined.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheets  Bake until edges start to brown, about 15-18 minutes.

Prepare the glaze while the cookies are baking by stirring together all glaze ingredients in a bowl until smooth.  Add additional milk as needed to make a smooth glaze that will drizzle easily.

Let cookies rest on baking sheets for 2 minutes before transferring to cooling racks.  Drizzle the glaze over the cookies.
