Iced Pumpkin Cookies

10 Dec

On Sunday, my mother and I were suppossed to go to a cookie exchange at a friends house. But the ice storm had different plans for us. 😦  The roads seemed really slick, so we decided to stay home and just eat the cookies ourselves. 🙂  Well, I brought mine to work and my coworkers seem very appreciative.
