New twist on snickerdoodles from dlynz.com. sounds incredible. the yield is a guess.
- 8 ounces butter, softened
- 1 1⁄2 cups granulated sugar
- 3⁄4 cup canned pumpkin
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 large egg
- 3 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon allspice
- Cream butter until fluffy.
- Add granulated sugar and pumpkin, and beat well.
- Add baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract and egg and beat until well mixed.
- Beat in all purpose flour, little bit at a time.
- Preheat oven to 350*.
- Cover dough with plastic and chill very well.
- Before removing the dough from the fridge, in a small bowl, mix together granulated sugar, ground cinnamon, ground ginger.
- Working quickly, use a medium cookie scoop to form 2-teaspoon sized balls. Roll between your palms until uniform and then roll in the sugar mixture.
- Place 2 inches apart on a greased or parchment or silpat lined baking sheet.
- Once you have rolled all the cookies in the sugar once, start back at the beginning and roll them all a second time – this really increases the nice sugary crispiness on the baked cookies. Trust me here – it is worth doing.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes, until they are very well browned. Remove immediately to a wire rack and cool completely before storing in an airtight container.
I was very disappointed with this recipe. I went and bought all the ingredients with the excitement of eating my favorite cookie with my favorite pumpkin flavor. No flavor of pumpkin nor the snicker doodle and I'm positive I followed the recipe. So, I will back to my regular snicker doodle recipe and feel very generous with my one star rating...
These baked up beautifully and had awesome texture. I loved eating the dough! I too wish that the pumpkin flavor was a little stronger but all in all a great cookie! Thanks
I made this for the My-3-Chefs Event, Theme Pumpkin Cookies. Xexe was an Undiscovered Chef. This was the first of the three pumpkin cookie recipes I made. I love snickerdoodles. The cookies had a great texture, the sugar was crispy on the outside, and they tasted great! Unfortunately, there was little pumpkin flavor. As a snickerdoodle cookie, though, these rocked! The recipe actually yielded 4 dozen cookies. Thanks for posting, Xexe
