Photo Hunt: Average

These are average sized Pumpkin Cookies with Cinnamon Frosting. They are about a 2 to 3 inches in diameter. Although, there is an over-average amount of cinnamon in the frosting. You can see all the cinnamon spread throughout the frosting.

Use any recipe for Pumpkin Cookies. I made a couple of different recipes. These came out cake like so they were easy to frost. I think next time I will use a pastry bag and pipe the frosting on nicely. It was hard to make these look pretty just using a knife to spread the frosting on.

Here's the recipe for the frosting:

1 stick of butter softened
4 cups of confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup of milk
1 or 2 tsp. vanilla extract (I like a lot of vanilla so I use two tsp.)
1 to 2 tsp. of ground cinnamon

-- Beat butter in bowl with a mixer until smooth.
-- Add confectioners sugar, milk, vanilla and cinnamon.
-- Mix until creamy scraping the bowl often.
-- Frost the cookies when cool.

If you like cinnamon, these cookies are great.

Indeed they look a lot better than average - Yum yum. I really enjoyed your very above average take on this difficult theme.
