From the kitchen of Ann Marie Barkwell.  These cookies  
taste good plain, but the unique brown sugar frosting takes
them to a whole new level.  A favorite fall recipe.
Cream:
2 c shortening
2 c sugar

Add:
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla

Add:
2 c pumpkin (1 can)
4 c flour
2 tsp b. powder
2 tsp b. soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon

Add:
2 c chocolate chips
1 c chopped walnuts, optional

Bake @ 350 , 12-13 min

Bake all the cookies before making the frosting.

Frosting:
Combine in a small pot:
3 Tbsp butter
4 Tbsp milk
1 c brown sugar
Boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat & add:
1 c confectioner sugar
If it's lumpy, whisk it.
The frosting thickens as it cools.

Top with
chocolate sprinkles.

Store loosely covered. If they are stored in an airtight seal,
they will get soggy.
"We're not good.
We're super."

This makes a lot! I always halve the recipe.   And I never use
nuts.                                                                   -Stephanie
