Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

Hi Y'all!
Since I got a late start on my pumpkin challenge, I am adding an extra pumpkin recipe this week.
I have found many yummy looking pumpkin recipes, but am having trouble deciding what to bake next. Any of you out there have a favorite pumpkin recipe? Or any pumpkin recipe you have been wanting to try?
I can tell you that these cookies are amazing! I could just eat the cookie dough by its self and be perfectly happy! I had a tough time keeping cookies on my plate while photographing them! Sneaky hands would come grab one after I would take the pictures..
Pumpkin Snickerdoodles:
3 3/4 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup pumpkin puree
1 large egg
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

For the coating:

1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
Dash of allspice

In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugars on medium speed until well combined. Next, beat in pumpkin then, add the egg and vanilla. Add in the dry ingredients and beat until combined, but do not over mix.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line your baking sheets with wax paper. In a small bowl, mix together the sugar and spices for the sugar coating.
Scoop dough, about 1 tablespoon, and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in the sugar mixture, and place on the lined baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each cookie. Use the palm of your hand to flatten each ball.


Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes. Remove when the centers of the cookies have set. Let cool on the baking pan for 5 minutes, and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Eat and Enjoy!
