soft glazed pumpkin sugar cookies

the goods:

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
4 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

3 cups confectioners' sugar
4 tablespoons water
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large mixing bowl, stir together butter, oil, pumpkin, sugars, vanilla, and eggs until incorporated and smooth. Slowly mix in all dry ingredients until completely incorporated. Scoop onto prepared baking sheet using a 1 and 1/2 tablespoon scoop and flatten to 1/2-inch thick using the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar. Bake for 8-9 minutes. While cookies back, whisk together glaze ingredients until smooth. Once cookies are out of the oven, cool for 3 minutes on baking sheet before transferring to a rack set over wax paper.  Spread a couple teaspoons of glaze over each warm cookie. Let glaze set a couple of hours before serving.
