Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Pumpkin snickerdoodles are a fun way to add  a taste of fall to an old favorite cookie.   This is an easy cookie recipe that uses homemade or canned pumpkin puree.   The dough does need to firm up in the fridge for an hour so you can come back at any time to finish up your delicious fall treat.

Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Snickerdoodles are one of my favorite cookies.  Don’t get me wrong, chocolate chip cookies are still the best right out of the oven, but I love that snickerdoodles have a depth of flavor that isn’t overly sweet.  Adding pumpkin puree to make these Pumpkin Snickerdoodles  is kind of a brilliant revelation.  It’s the perfect way to make an old standard new!

This Pumpkin Snickerdoodle recipe is pretty straight forward and easy.  I made the dough after breakfast and then left it in the fridge until after lunch.   I did learn not to flatten your dough too much or the cookies are kind of flat.   The Pumpkin Snickerdoodles got better as they sat and the flavors melded together.  I stored them in an air tight container for about a week and they tasted better every day!

I’m thinking these would make an awesome treat if made some pumpkin ice cream or let the kids make some ice cream in a bag.  Put the ice cream between two cookies to make a sandwich and then drizzle with homemade caramel sauce.

    These look absolutely delicious! I have always preferred snickerdoodles and sugar cookies over chocolate chip. Adding the pumpkin flavors are just the icing on the cake for me! Thanks for sharing this recipe (pinning)!

      What?!?! We survive on Snickerdoodles at our house because they are so simple and use easy ingredients. I’ll have to try Camilles version.

    I have to make these!I love making the regular Snickerdoodles and this is a nice twist…I use a melon baller to scoop mine out and never flatten them at all,I also sometimes keep the dough in the fridge (covered up of course)for maybe a week…when I do this I’ll bake about a dozen at a time…nothing better than a fresh warm Snickerdoodle!
