Pumpkin Snickerdoodles


Super Soft Pumpkin Snickerdoodles

10 years ago when I got married Pinterest was not a thing (yet). Holy cow that will always date me won’t it? Anyway- The first few years of married life  I would pour over recipe books, and the internet and write down recipes on these cute little recipe cards. I wish I knew who to credit this particular recipe to, but I wrote it down 10 years ago and have made it so many times I almost don’t need the recipe card anymore. When I think of Fall, I think of THESE cookies. And I am excited to share the recipe for Pumpkin Snickerdoodles with you.
