  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In large bowl or mixer beat together 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 cup butter until light and fluffy.
  3. Add pumpkin, vanilla, and egg and blend well.
  4. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt mix well.
  5. Stir in pecans.
  6. Drop by rounded spoonfuls (an 80 scoop works great!) a couple of inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  7. Bake at 350°F for 10-12 min or just until the edges only are light golden brown.
  8. Immediately remove from cookie sheets and cool on rack.
  9. Maple Penuche Frosting.
  10. In a medium sauce pan combine 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, 3 tbls butter and bring to a boil.
  11. Add maple syrup and cook over medium heat for 1 minute or until slightly thickened, stirring constantly!
  12. Let cool 10 minutes.
  13. Add cream; and beat until smooth.
  14. Beat in powdered sugar gradually until desired consistency for frosting.
  15. Frost cooled cookies and keep in single layer in an air tight container to keep moist and fresh-that is if they last that long!
