Pumpkin Cookies

Every October my family makes these amazing pumpkin cookies.  They are by far the best pumpkin cookies I have had and the brown sugar frosting adds the perfect touch.  This recipe is too good not to share.  I wish I knew where the original recipe came from.  If anybody knows let me know.
