Pumpkin Snickerdoodles - Dee Dee's

Diane Hopson Smith


Here's a twist on the Snickerdoodles we all know and love! And just in time for the holidays! These cookies are rolled in a mixture of Cinnamon, sugar, ginger and allspice. The ginger makes this cookie with it's unique citrus flavor and it's spicy warming effect.

When I found this recipe, I knew I had to give it a try!
