Pumpkin Spice Soft Sugar Cookies

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars
1

"If a homemade pumpkin pie and a soft sugar cookie had little cookies of their own, well, let these speak for themselves. Add your favorite seasoned nuts if you wish. I happened to have had some caramelized sugar I had previously made and I crushed this up and added to the top of some of the cookies just before baking."

  1. Beat butter and 2 cups sugar with an electric mixer in a large bowl until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat until smooth.

  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray baking sheets with cooking spray.
  4. Pour 1/4 cup sugar into a shallow bowl.
  5. Drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Moisten the bottom of a glass with water and dip the glass in sugar. Gently flatten each drop of cookie dough with the bottom of the sugared glass.
  6. Bake cookies in the preheated oven until set, 5 to 7 minutes.

I was wondering if I could roll and cut these into shapes? or will they not hold and crumble....
