You could always go without the frosting on these cookies, but I would be lying if I told you I didn't prefer them with frosting. When you're having dessert why not go all in and really make it worth the calories, right?
Also, topping the cookies with frosting enables you to add cute festive sprinkles! I can't resist the opportunity to seasonally customize my desserts.

Add pumpkin and mix again. Sift in dry ingredients and stir to combine. Do not overmix. 
Pour in almond milk, mix to combine once more. 
Freeze dough for 15 mins or refrigerate for 30 mins. 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
Scoop out dough with a tablespoon. Roll into balls and place two inches apart. They will spread.
Press down cookies either with your hand or the bottom of a glass.
Bake for 10-12 mins or until golden.
Once baked, take them out of the oven and let the cookies rest for a minute or so before transferring to a cooling rack.
Place butter into bowl, Beat until fluffy. Then add vanilla, spices, pumpkin butter and mix some more. 
Add powdered sugar in 1/2 cup instalments, mixing in between. Add a dash of milk if it gets too thick. You want the frosting pretty thick though. 
Once the cookies have completely cooled, go to town frosting those babies up! 
Don't forget some festive sprinkles for added flair!
