Want to know a secret? We shot these photos over a year ago and with the craziness of getting married last October and everything else I had going on, I’m just now getting around to sharing the recipe. Any chance you’ve been craving pumpkin snickerdoodles? Today is your day! (p.s. Yes I know I still have to share wedding photos. Soon! I promise.)

I love snickerdoodle cookies and I also love seasonal twists on classic recipes, so these pumpkin snickerdoodles were a no brainer. They’re soft and chewy with a great crumb and they’re not crazy sweet, which is sort of my favorite when it comes to cookies. When baking your whole house will smell like the best parts of fall. I suggest a double batch! These ones will go quickly. (I want to bake some right now to be honest.)

As with most other snickerdoodle recipes I’ve played with, make sure you leave a bit of time in your baking adventures to chill the dough. It totally changes the texture of the cookie and makes them even more delicious. Plus that way, if you really want to you can prep the dough whenever you want and then bake them off when you’re ready!
