Pinterest Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Winner!

Time for more pumpkin goodies.
Here we have Pumpkin Snickerdoodles, although last week DH said he'd had enough of pumpkins.  Good thing I didn't listen to him!

I made the dough this morning and stuck it in the fridge before heading to school to volunteer.  I took it out when I got home a couple of hours later and viola...
The recipe said to scoop about 2 1/2 tablespoons of dough and roll it into a ball - do you know how much that is?!  So I used my handy dandy cookie scoop instead, it worked great.
It made quite a big batch, enough to bring to the football dinner and some to stay home.

*My take on the Pumpkin Snickerdoodles?  Yum!  I'd never made any type of snickerdoodles before and I'm so glad this was my first.  Batter test was good and the cookies nice and soft.

*Others take on the Pumpkin Snickerdoodles?  Once again, the football team liked them, some loved them!  One boy took the last five and told Griffin that I could make him more for his birthday!  Nathan liked them too and was happy when I told him we had more at home.  DH liked them, even after being told they were pumpkin.

  *Would I make it again?  Oh, yes!  I don't think I'd do anything different except continue to use my scoop.  I hope they freeze well, I need to bring some to my parents when we see them!

A friend posted this on fb - Kahlua Pumpkin Cheesecake Martini - and it sounds wonderful!  Today I found the vodka so I'm set for the weekend.  
But I must remember, drinking + stitching = frogging!

Those little scoops are so handy. Your cookies look scrumpious.

I make snickerdoodles all the time but never with pumpkin. Hmm...might be time to do some testing in the kitchen. ;-)

hahaha, I'm such a stitching addict, when I saw the title I thought of the SMF fabric called Snickerdoodle, not food!
