Everyone loves classic snickerdoodle cookies! I certainly do so when I came across the recipe for Pumpkin Snickerdoodles from Cooking Classy I couldn’t wait to try it. The recipe is very similar to regular snickerdoodles with the addition of pumpkin puree and spices that are perfect for pumpkin recipes such as cinnamon and nutmeg. I wasn’t sure what to expect when making these and was excited to taste them.
The dough came together quickly and was so pretty. Halfway through rolling the cookie dough in the cinnamon sugar mixture I realized just how pretty it looked and snapped this picture. Does baking excite any of you as much as it does me?! There isn’t much better then baking in the fall especially when it involves pumpkin and cinnamon! The smells were awesome in my kitchen.
The cookies baked up so pretty and puffy. I absolutely LOVED that the dough didn’t spread. I still haven’t posted a classic snickerdoodle recipe yet on my blog because despite the many recipes I have tried they all spread too much for my liking. These Pumpkin Snickerdoodles did not spread and I was so happy! The texture was amazing too. So soft and chewy and had the perfect amount of pumpkin and spice to them. I shared with friends and family and they seriously were fighting over who got the last few cookies! And my sister-in-law who loves snickerdoodle cookies more than anyone I know declared these much better than regular snickerdoodles! This recipe is now tested and approved so it’s time to get baking. I know you will love it!
