Pumpkin Cookies with Cinnamon Icing

This is a must try cookie recipe!!! I made these tasty treats for dessert when we had friends over for dinner and they were a HUGE hit with everyone. The pumpkin flavor was amazing in these moist and soft cookies and the cinnamon icing made them extra special. I think I have a new favorite cookie - they are that good!
