Most people love a good snickerdoodle... well that's never been a favorite of mine and one day was thinking... (I know, look out, Wendy's thinking again!) But this time came to a wonderful result! And now this cookie is one of my most requested best sellers!

We love snickerdoodle cookies and this is a nice twist on a classic cookie. Adding pumpkin spice instead of cinnamon is pure genius and gives the cookie a fall feel. This pumpkin pie snickerdoodle is slightly crisp on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside. Yum! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen

How to Make Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles

Step-by-Step

  1. Cream together butter, shortening and sugar until fluffy.
  2. Add egg and mix well.
  3. Sift together then add flour, tartar, soda, salt, 1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice.
  4. Blend well. It may seem crumbly but it will come together into a nice dough (just takes a few minutes sometimes).
  5. Mix the 1/2 c of sugar with 1 Tbsp of pumpkin pie spice in a bowl and set aside for rolling dough balls in. Amount of sugar to spice just depends on your liking. Start with 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice for the first pan, if you'd like more spice add more to the sugar.
  6. Roll dough into 1 1/2" balls or walnut size.
  7. Then roll in sugar and spice mixture.
  8. Place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet and flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass.
  9. Bake at 375 for 9-11 minutes.
  10. Remove from pan right away to cool on wire racks.
  11. *This is one of those cookies that is best right out of the oven (as is any cookie, lol) or after being stored in an airtight container a few hours. ENJOY!!!
