Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies

Y'all.  Stop what you're doing and go make these.  And then right when they come out of the oven, give me a call and I'll be right over with a gallon of milk to help you eat them.

Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies

1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp baking soda

Cinnamon-sugar-spice coating
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnamon


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream softened butter and sugar until fluffy.
Whisk in egg, pumpkin, and vanilla one at a time.
Dump remaining dry ingredients in the bowl and stir until all combined.
It might seem dry at first, but keep stirring until it comes together as a dough.

In a shallow dish, combine sugar, nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon.
Take a teaspoon of dough, roll it around in the cinnamon-sugar mixture until coated and then flatten between the palm of your hands,
coat with cinnamon-sugar again,
and place on a greased baking sheet.
Repeat with remaining cookies.

Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Makes about 36 cookies.

I know it'll be hard to do, but please share.  They are too delicious to keep them all to yourself.

Happy Monday!!!
