Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles

Easy pumpkin spice snickerdoodle cookie recipe perfect for fall.

I think people can be broken up into 2 groups:

There’s almost no middle ground.  Well, I’m in that middle group if there can be one.  I am “She who appreciates pumpkin spice, but no need to worship it”.  I like it in moderation, but I’m not about to have a Pumpkin Spice Latte with my Pumpkin Pie next to my Pumpkin Spiced Sweet Potatoes.

But I would totally take you up on an offer of a Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodle!  These are perfect for me – a taste of pumpkin spice without being too “in your face” about it.  They’re a nice deviation of a Snickerdoodle cookie, which is a favorite of mine.
