Pumpkin Sugar Cookies with Brown Sugar Buttercream Glaze

Ingredients
  

for the cookies:

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

for the glaze:

  • 6 tablespoons butter softened
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 & 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 teaspoons milk

Instructions
 

for the cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, stir the butter, oil, pumpkin, both sugars, vanilla and eggs together until incorporated and smooth. Slowly mix in all dry ingredients until completely incorporated. Scoop onto prepared baking sheet using 1 tablespoon scoop. Bake 8-9 minutes.

for the glaze:

  • While the cookies cool, prepare the glaze. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter until it’s light and fluffy. Add both sugars, vanilla, and milk and beat until the frosting is light and fluffy, but still thin. If you would prefer a thicker frosting, add only about 2 teaspoons milk.
  • Once the cookies are cooled, use a spoon to add glaze to the top of each cookie.
