Norma's Pumpkin Spiced Glazed Cookies

Norma DeRemer


These have been my favorite cookies of all time. They are so soft and everyone in the family love them. I thought that I would make them for a cookie contest they had in town. I'm sure they would have won. Maybe next time they have a cook off I'll enter these.
