1 c pumpkin
1 egg
1tsp vanilla
2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla and mix well. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir into butter mixture until well blended. Add nuts and raisins.

Drop by teaspoonful onto parchment paper, about 2 inches apart. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden. Cool.

For the icing: Cream conf sugar and butter. Add remaining ingredients and beat until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. (I only used a 1/4 of the icing and drizzled using a sandwich baggy with the corner cut).
