Learn How it Works...
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 to 2 teaspoons water
Decorator sugar, if desired
*Substitute 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon plus 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg and 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves.
Combine butter, brown sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla in bowl; beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients. Beat at low speed until mixture forms a dough.
Divide dough into thirds. Shape each third into 6x1 1/2-inch square log. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate until firm (at least 1 hour).
Heat oven to 375°F.
Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife; place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-11 minutes or until lightly browned on edges. Cool 5 minutes on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar and 2 teaspoons vanilla in bowl; stir in enough water for desired drizzling consistency. Drizzle glaze over cooled cookies; let stand until glaze is set. Sprinkle with decorator sugar, if desired.
