Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

We really like snickerdoodles at our house so we wanted to try these pumpkin snickerdoodles.  We hope you will enjoy them too!

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles


Cream together wet ingredients:

*1 cup Granulated Sugar

*3/4 Brown Sugar, packed

*1 cup Salted Butter, room temperature

*1 Egg Yolk

*3/4 cup Pure pumpkin, canned (This much pumpkin makes a soft cookie next time I might try 1/2 cup for a bit more crunchy cookie.)

*2 teaspoons Vanilla Extract

Dry Ingredients:


Sift together in a flour sifter into a bowl the following:

*3 1/4 cups plus 2 tablespoons All-purpose Flour

*1 teaspoon Cornstarch

*1 teaspoons Cream of Tarter

*1 teaspoon Baking Soda

*1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder

*1/2 teaspoon Salt

*1 teaspoon Cinnamon

*1/2 teaspoon Ginger

*1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg

*1/4 teaspoon Allspice


Sugar Cinnamon for rolling

*1/4 cup Granulated Sugar

*1 1/2 teaspoons Cinnamon

Combine the wet and dry ingredients in a bowl and hand mix together just until incorporated.
When cookie dough is combined, using a tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop cookies. Place the scooped cookie dough into your hand and roll into a ball and place in the cinnamon sugar mixture and roll until covered with mixture.

Then place sugar cinnamon coated ball onto a Silpat covered 1/2 baking sheet, repeat. Bake the cookies at 350*F. for 10-12 minutes (12 cookies per sheet).

Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
