A few days ago I picked up a new cookie jar. But, not just any cookie jar. An owl cookie jar!! It’s probably one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!! Not only will it be great during the Fall season, but it’s gonna look adorable in my kitchen all year round!
So to fill my cookie jar, I needed an awesome Fall cookie! I’ve been craving snickerdoodles for a while now… something about the bite they have and that cinnamon on the outside that I just can’t get enough of. BUT… it’s Fall so I suppose I should add some pumpkin to the recipe too, right?!! So yup… that’s what I did. Pumpkin Snickerdoodles.
I did a little research and read a bunch of other recipes and the comments on them for this cookie on some of my favorite blogs. Most other people who said they made these cookies said they were a little dull in the pumpkin flavor and too cake/muffin like… but overall were really super yummy. So, I set out to make mine heavy on the pumpkin flavor and more chewy like a cookie, not a muffin.
I took my go-to snickerdoodle recipe and tweaked it to accommodate the extra moisture of the pumpkin and added some spices to bring out the pumpkin flavor in the topping. I think they turned out spectacular! A must-make every Fall!
Let me know how they turn out for you!!!
