Pumpkin Rocks - Almost Gone!

Does the nearly empty container tell you something? My neighbor gave me some of these in exchange for a portrait of her cat! They are OUTSTANDING. Here's the recipe:

"Pumpkin Rocks"

Combine in order. Might look curdled:

1/2 cup butter or Crisco
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups pumpkin (I used a 15 oz. can of plain pumpkin...not the pie filling)

Gradually add following dry ingredients, beating only till mixed. Stir in raisins, valnuts. Use one (1) tbsp or #60 scoop for each cooky. These do not change shape:

2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp allspice
1 cup raisins
2 cups walnuts, broken

Bake 15 minutes or less at 375 on foiled pans. Cookies are done when they spring back when gently touched.

Beat in order in mixer till smooth. Should be consistency of soft whipped cream.
Cover airtight when not in use.
As you remove cookies from oven slide foil off sheet and while cookies are very hot, brush glaze generously over tops. Should be heavy coating to run unevently down sides.
Transfer cookies to rack to cool. Glaze will dry completely.

2 tbsp soft butter
1 1/2 cups confectioner's sugar
pinch of salt
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp milk

other sizes: small medium original auto

Thank you so much for the picture and the recipe. We have made similar cookies almost every year (we never used the frosting , think we will try it this year, and I do not like nuts in cookies so we left them off). But this year we cannot find the old worn recipe but thanks to you we will have them again. We would have tried to make them without the recipe but who knows the results.
