  • Cream together sugar and butter. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla extract.
  • Add flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and cream of tartar. Stir. (Note: dough will be firm, not like your normal cookie dough. Don’t worry it is supposed to be this way.)

  • Remove from cookie sheets and completely cool.
