softened (I tried this with 1/2 margarine and 1/2 shortening as listed in their recipe, but they turned out softer and tastier with just butter)
pumpkin pie spice
tastes more pumpkin-y than just cinnamon :)
Preheat oven to 400°
Cream butter and sugar together with mixer.
Add pumpkin, egg and vanilla, mix together.
Add the dry ingredients and stir together.
Chill dough for 30 minutes.
While dough is chilling, mix 1/2 cup sugar, 1 tbsp pumpkin pie spice
Scoop a small spoonful of dough and roll it into a ball. Roll in the sugar mixture and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake 7-9 minutes. Cool pan on cooling rack. Cookies will be slightly browned and very soft!
