I have to admit, I’ve never really loved pumpkin cookies very much. I love pumpkin and cookies, but the problem with them is that they tend to be cakey and not really taste like cookies. I’d much rather just eat a piece of pumpkin cake.
I’ve had these Pumpkin Snickerdoodles on my mind for a while now, so a few weekends ago I set out to finally figure out how to make pumpkin cookies that weren’t cakey. I wanted to create a pumpkin cookie recipe that was soft, chewy, and loaded with pumpkin flavor.
And let me tell you, these Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles deliver all of that. Not only are they super soft and chewy, but these cookies have actual pumpkin in them too. If you love pumpkin and snickerdoodles, then this is one recipe you have to try this fall!
