Ingredient Information:

About Cookie Glaze: Many times pumpkin cookies are glazed
"A glaze in cooking is a coating of a glossy, often sweet, substance applied to food. Egg whites and icing are both used as glazes. For example, doughnut glaze is made from a simple mixture of confectioner's sugar and water. A typical medieval English glaze was the 'Elizabethan' glaze made from lightly beaten egg white and sugar used predominantly on pastries of the time. Glazes can also be made from fruit and are often applied to pastries."

Pumpkins are very versatile in their uses for cooking:
"from the fleshy shell, to the seeds, to even the flowers; most parts of the pumpkin are edible. Traditionally, pumpkin is a very popular Halloween and Thanksgiving staples.

About Chocolate Chips:
"Chocolate chips are small chunks of chocolate. They are often sold in a round, flat-bottomed teardrop shape. They are available in numerous sizes, from large to miniature, but are usually around 1 cm in diameter. Many sizes are available depending on preference."
  Chocolate chips are a required ingredient for making chocolate chip cookies!

Pecan Nutrition
Wikipedia tells us "Pecans are a good source of protein and unsaturated fats. Like walnuts (which pecans resemble), pecans are rich in omega-6 fatty acids, although pecans contain about half as much omega-6 as walnuts. Pecans contain much less omega-3 fatty acid than walnuts."
"A diet rich in nuts can lower the risk of gallstones in women. The antioxidants and plant sterols found in pecans reduce high cholesterol by reducing the "bad" LDL cholesterol levels."

Cinnamon in History: Fun Fact:
"Cinnamon has been known from remote antiquity; the first mention of a particular spice in the Old Testament is of cinnamon (. 24) where Moses is commanded to use both sweet cinnamon (Hebrew קִנָּמוֹן, qinnāmôn) and cassia in the holy anointing oil; in Proverbs, where the lover's bed is perfumed with myrrh, aloe and cinnamon; and in Song of Solomon, a song describing the beauty of his beloved, cinnamon scents her garments like the smell of Lebanon. It was so highly prized among ancient nations that it was regarded as a gift fit for monarchs and even for a god: a fine inscription records the gift of cinnamon and cassia to the temple of Apollo at Miletus."
