In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar; add pumpkin and vanilla and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine flour, Clabber Girl Baking Powder, baking soda and spices. Add to creamed mixture and mix until thoroughly combined.

Refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours, until firm. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350° F.

On a floured surface, roll out dough to about a 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with cookie cutters and place cookies 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
