Janis' favorite: Pumpkin raisin cookies

Janis is the kind of co-worker who hope you have in your life. Always willing to listen (and ready to tell you the truth)...and is always bringing great treats into the office to boot!

Her niece introduced her family to this recipe. They say it's the best hands-down:

Pumpkin raisin cookies
1 c. shortening
1 c. sugar
1 c. canned pumpkin
1 egg
2 c. all-purpose flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1 c. raisins

Cream shortening, sugar and pumpkin in a mixing bowl; blend in egg. Sift together flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon; blend into pumpkin mixture. Fold in raisins. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Spread frosting on warm cookies. Makes about 3 dozen.

3 T. butter
4 t. milk
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
1 c. powdered sugar
3/4 t. vanilla

Combine butter, milk and brown sugar in a saucepan over low heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Cool. Mix in powdered sugar and vanilla.
