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! 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!!!
