Sarah D.'s Chocolate Chip Cookies

My first experience meeting Sarah D., she taught in Relief Society and brought these cookies. Talk about a great first impression.

1 cup shortening
1 cup pumpkin
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1-2 cups chocolate chips

3 Tablespoons melted butter
3 Tablespoons milk
1/2 cup brown sugar
powdered sugar

Blend together shortening, sugar, pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Add flour and other dry ingredients. Blend. Add chocolate chips.

Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes.

Icing: Boil all ingredients but powdered sugar for 2 minutes. Take off heat. Add powdered sugar and stir with wire whisk until desired consistency. Pour on while cookies are warm. Add milk if icing hardens while waiting for other batches to come out.
