Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies
Have your first taste of fall with a spiced-up cookie
Snickerdoodles have a pretty funny name, but they're a classic treat. A cake-like cookie with a cinnamon sugar coating, the name for snickerdoodles is likely of German origin, meaning "snail-like." This version of the confection adds in pureed pumpkin for a perfectly fall tasting treat.
The flavors of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and ground cloves combine for a delicately spiced yet flavor packed cookie. Canned pumpkin puree is the way to go unless you want to add a few hours of pumpkin-cooking to your afternoon. Make sure to buy pure pumpkin puree – not pie filling – and since this recipe doesn't use the whole can, you can freeze it in ice cube trays for easy use in future recipes – or make pumpkin soup!
