Frost on the Pumpkin Cookies

I received this recipe from a neighbor when I lived in a planned community in Spanaway. The frosting makes these cookies so much better than pumpkin pie! I am going to try the frosting with cinnamon rolls next time. I am thinking that this recipe may be better made as bar cookies, which will most definitely make them easier to store once they are frosted.  Frost on the Pumpkin cookies are a great addition to your morning coffee.
