3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup pumpkin
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour

Cream together butter and sugar.  Add egg.  Mix in pumpkin and vanilla.  Add cinnamon, salt, and baking powder.  Mix flour in last.  Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, best if refrigerated overnight.***

After chilled, roll dough out onto floured surface.  Cut with cookie cutters.  Bake at 400º for 6-8 minutes.

Frost with Pumpkin Cream Cheese Frosting or Cinnabon Cinnamon Roll Frosting when cookies are cooled.

***My recommendation is to divide dough in half and sandwich between plastic wrap, shaping and flattening like you would a pie crust.  This dough gets very hard and is easiest to peal the plastic away, and begin rolling out an already semi-flat and circular shape.
