Your favorite cookie gets an update for Fall. These Pumpkin Pie Spice Snickerdoodles are over the top with flavor.
Fall is my absolute favorite season. I’m not sure if it’s because of the cooler weather, the pumpkin treats, the fun things to do, or the changing of the leaves. Since I live in Texas, our leaves don’t really change but all the other stuff we do have!
I usually start wanting to eat anything pumpkin beginning in June. But I resist the urge and wait until it gets a little cooler before I start the baking. And by cooler I mean high 80s. As soon as we got out of the 90s I started my fall baking.
These Pumpkin Pie Spice Snickerdoodles first made their appearance on the blog four years ago. I made them as a treat for my niece and nephews on one of my trips home. To this day my niece still loves them and because she now lives close to me, she has been the recipient of them this year quite a bit. I need to make some to take to my nephew again because I know he would appreciate them.
This is the first treat of pumpkin season for me and I couldn’t be happier. These cookies were so soft and the hint of pumpkin left you wanting another cookie. Be aware that it is easy to get hooked on these cookies. I’ve made them four times in the last month.
Being a food blogger, I tend to make something a few times and then forget about it because there is always something new to make. I’m going through my old content and updating some of the photos and bringing them back to life. This cookie certainly deserved the honor of being the first one to get a makeover.
