Pumpkin Pie Snickerdoodles are a fabulous Fall twist on a classic cookie the whole family will love!
There’s nothing quite like a Snickerdoodle. I mean, really! What other cookie is both fun to say and fabulous to eat?? Snickerdoodles are a great cookie to have the kiddos help with and make the perfect after-school snack.
I knew about 6 months ago that I wanted to make a Pumpkin Pie Snickerdoodle for the Fall. I used my Totally Addicting Snickerdoodles recipe as a jumping-off point and used a few tricks to keep the Snickerdoodles as chewy and delicious as they should be.
You’ll probably look at the recipe and assume that I forgot one crucial ingredient – eggs! But I didn’t :) The pumpkin replaces the eggs in this recipe entirely. I tried eliminating just one egg from my favorite Snickerdoodle recipe but the texture just wasn’t quite right. Eliminating both eggs and upping the pumpkin content gave me both the flavor and texture I was looking for.
It wasn’t until a few years ago that I really fell in love with Snickerdoodles but they quickly became a family favorite. The boys, particularly Reece, LOVE Snickerdoodles and these Pumpkin Pie Snickerdoodles exceeded their high expectations. The mellow pumpkin flavor is nicely accented with pumpkin pie spice. Instead of rolling the cookies in just sugar and cinnamon, I added some pumpkin pie spice to both the sugar-cinnamon mixture as well as to the cookie itself. I love that punch of spice in these cookies!
On another note – I just used my last can of pumpkin! I can’t believe how quickly I am going through it all! I hope you guys aren’t tired of pumpkin recipes yet because I’ve got some more coming your way soon :)
