Pumpkin cookies

I found the inspiration for this cookie on Pinterest. However, I had a few issues with the original recipe and so here's my version. I'm going to be honest, These are really freaking good. 

Pumpkin Cookies:
1 Cup butter
3 Cups Sugar
2 eggs
Mix in:
1 large can pumpkin (30 ounces) {NOT PUMPKIN PIE MIX, PLAIN PUMPKIN}
Now add:
1 Tablespoon vanilla
5 cups flour
And then add:
 3 tsp. cinnamon
 1 tsp. nutmeg
2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Now, bake @ 350 for about 10-11 minutes. Let cool.

Cream Cheese Icing:
  1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
Gradually mix in: 3-4 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract 

2-3 Tablespoons milk. Until desired consistency is reached.  You want it kind of thick.
{I don't ever measure my frosting I just eyeball it}
Blend until smooth. Ice cookies. {I use a giant piping bag to make the icing pretty.}
These make great sandwich cookies too!
Store in the refrigerator.
