Our favorite Snickerdoodle Recipe gets a fall makeover with the addition of pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice!
Did you know that Snickerdoodle cookies are my favorite? I doubt you did because in the 8 years I’ve been blogging I don’t think I’ve ever shared that with you! I don’t necessarily have one favorite, “go to” Snickerdoodle Recipe. I have tried and true ones that I return to time and time again, but I also can’t resist trying every new Snickerdoodle Recipe I come across.
That’s why when I saw a Snickerdoodle Recipe on the Crisco website, I knew I had to give it a try. It was new to me, but even with that I knew I wanted to make a few little changes to bring it into the fall season even more. What was born from my desire to change it up a little was the most amazing Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies around! These cookies were light and fluffy and full of just the right amount of pumpkin spice flavor! They’d make a great addition to your holiday cookie tray for sure!
