Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies with fresh ginger glaze

1 cup Ready Mix (pie ready) can pumpkin
  (This can pumpkin contains some sugar)
3/4 cups white sugar
2 eggs
3.4 oz box instant vanilla pudding
3/4 cups canola oil
1 tsp fresh grated peeled ginger
Mix these ingredients in large bowl with electric mixer until fully blended.

Add lower ingredients and mix to combine:
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda
2 1/4 cups flour
Fold in approx. 1 cup oats (for cake like cookies)  (For chewier cookies add additional oats)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cookie dough and be refrigerated for a few mins before baking.  Drop by spoonfuls onto lined, greased cookies sheets.  I use parchment paper greased with cooking spray.  Bake for approx. 10-12 mins or until brown.  Cooking time depends on size of cookies.

Fresh Ginger Icing:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
1/2 tsp vanilla
milk, added little at a time to right consistency.  The glaze should be thin enough to run off fork.  Drizzle over cooled cookies.
