Pumpkin Spice Soft Sugar Cookies

Big C

"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."

These were super good. These came out thinner and crispier then I thought they would be. I think I pressed them too much. Also I didn't add enough citrus. But I took them to work and they were ...
