Pumpkin Softies

These pumpkin-flavored cookies have a soft, muffin top texture and plenty of pumpkin flavor. Not overly sweet, these cookies are a great mid-morning fall snack. Thanks to Nicole at Baking Bites for this great pumpkin spice ice cream topping!

This was the first time I had used an ice cream topping in cookies. I think I will try this again with chocolate. Have you used ice cream toppings for anything other than topping ice cream?
1 cup flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
1/8 cup brown sugar
1/8 cup pumpkin spice ice cream topping
1 egg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a small bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking soda, ginger, and cinnamon. Set aside.
Cream butter, brown sugar, and ice cream topping until creamy. Add egg and mix.
Gradually mix in the flour mixture.
Refrigerate dough for 15 minutes.
Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheets and bake for 12-14 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack.
Yields 1 dozen
