Pumpkin Cookies with Cinnamon Icing

I found this great recipe on a cooking blog called, I love her blog I check it almost every day and get new ideas and awesome recipes!  These Pumpkin cookies are really soft, chewy and moist! Anyway here's the recipe! :)

1/2 cup of whole wheat flour
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (if you don't have pumpkin pie spice, just mix together some cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg it's the same thing!)
1/2 cup of butter, softened
1 1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Combine the flours, baking powder, baking soda and salt together in a bowl.  Mix well.
In another bowl beat the pumpkin pie spice, butter, and sugar together with a mixer until creamy.  Add the pumpkin puree, egg, and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.  Slowly add the flour mixture to the pumpkin mixture until just combined.
Drop by the spoonful onto the baking sheet.  Place into the oven and bake for 15 minutes.  Cool on a wire rack.
Cinnamon Icing:
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar (I put 1 in, I don't like glazes or frosting's too sweet!)
3-4 tbsp milk
1 tbsp melted butter

Combine all of the ingredients together in a bowl and mix thoroughly.  Place the cookies on the wire rack over waxed paper.  Spoon the icing over the top of each cookie and spread around until covered.  Goes great with an ice cold glass of milk!  Enjoy!
