I love the random patterns that the glaze makes on these pretty little cake-like cookies. They remind me of the soft molasses drop cookies that my Great-Aunt Verna made whenever we visited her and Uncle Winn. They are delicious ... try them!
Assemble your cast of characters ... notice, I'm hiding the rum. That is an optional ingredient, but be sure to know, it does add to the flavor experience.
Whisk the dry ingredients together and set them aside while you beat the butter and sugar, egg, pumpkin, vanilla, and rum. Then mix in the dry ingredients.
Spoon by rounded teaspoonsful onto greased cookie sheets and bake - see how cake-y the dough is? I know a blurry picture makes that hard to see, but all these shots came out blurry and this one was the best of them - oops!
Place cookies really close together to cool and then drizzle with the glaze. Let them sit there for a good while unti the glaze 'sets up'. Eat a few while you wait - for testing purposes.

Really good with a glass of milk or mulled cider!
