Ingredients:

Cookies:

2 cup(s) all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon(s) baking powder

1 teaspoon(s) baking soda

1 1/2 tablespoon(s) pumpkin pie spice

1/2 teaspoon(s) salt

1 stick(s) unsalted butter, softened

1 1/4 cup(s) sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon(s) pure vanilla extract

1 cup(s) canned pumpkin puree

2 tablespoon(s) minced candied ginger

Glaze:

1 cup(s) confectioners' sugar

2 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter, melted

1 tablespoon(s) milk

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a small bowl, whisk the flour with the baking powder, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. In a large bowl, using a handheld electric mixer, beat the butter with the sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla followed by the pumpkin puree and candied ginger. At low speed, beat in the dry ingredients until evenly incorporated.

Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop level tablespoons of the batter onto the prepared baking sheets, 1 inch apart. Using a lightly moistened finger, smooth the tops. Bake the cookies, 1 sheet at a time in the center of the oven, until risen and firm, about 15 minutes.

In a small bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar with the butter and milk and stir until smooth and spreadable. While the cookies are still slightly warm, spoon a teaspoon of the glaze onto each one and spread slightly. Let cool completely, then transfer to a platter.
