Whisk together first six ingredients in a bowl. In the bowl of a mixer, beat butter and sugar until fully blended. Mix in eggs, add pumpkin and vanilla and mix until well combined. Add flour mixture and mix until just fully incorporated.
Chill batter for a minimum of half an hour.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Scoop dough with small cookie scoop onto lined cookie sheets. Bake for 12 minutes, allow to cool and frost with maple frosting.
