Preheat oven to 175°C.

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
Add pumpkin, egg, and vanilla, and beat until creamy.
Mix in dry ingredients.
Drop on cookie sheet and flatten slightly.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven.
Cool cookies, then frost.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-high heat until golden brown in color, about 10 minutes.
Pour butter into a bowl, and add sugar, vanilla, and 15 ml milk; stir until smooth.
If the icing is too thick, add another tablespoon milk, a little at a time, until consistency is spreadable.
Let cool 5 minutes.
