In large bowl, beat butter, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed 1 minute, or mix with spoon, until well blended. Stir in flour, salt and 1/2 cup of the pumpkin seeds. Shape dough into a ball; flatten to 1-inch thickness. Cover; refrigerate about 2 hours.
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. On lightly floured surface, roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes with 2-inch cookie cutters. On cookie sheets, place cutouts about 1 inch apart. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds, pressing gently into cutouts.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
Use metal cookie cutters to easily cut through pumpkin seeds in this dough.
