Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin pie spice
  • Cinnamon sugar, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in eggs. In another bowl, whisk flour and pie spice; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk. Cover and refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to roll.
  2. Preheat oven to 350┬░. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-1/2-in. round cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. If desired, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
  3. Bake until edges are light brown, 12-14 minutes. Cool on pans 1 minute. Remove to wire racks to cool.
