It’s October 3rd and I have waited exactly 33 days to post this recipe. At the very edge of my seat, I may add.
You see, I have a theory about all things pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice: They are all laced with some form of pumpkin crack. Pumpkin spice crack is pumped into the air we breathe on or around mid-August as we sleep, interrupting our dreams of summer berries. On September 1st – and upon the first yellowing of leaves, our brains are triggered at the mere mention of pumpkin, thus making us lose our shit.

Am I close?
I think that’s pretty much how it went down.
It is pumpkin everything, all the things – Memes, coffee, drinks, vodka, t-shirts, plastic cups, cookies – Everything sports the pumpkin insignia and we eat it up – Literally and figuratively.
Now, I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t participate in the pumpkin spice craze, hence – Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles.

Flow with me, let’s talk about this cake-like gem.
These cookies!! Baked each and every fall without fail since 2012. Through the years the recipe has evolved some, yet its integrity remains. This is a bomb-ass cookie.
There’s pumpkin puree in the mix, of course – A heaping cup of it. This puree is mixed with a hint of orange zest. Yah. Pumpkin and orange. Totally go together. Pumpkin co-exists in delicious symbiosis with warm fall spices and all-purpose flour.

Regular granulated and brown sugars are mixed in equal portions with a heap of unsalted butter. An egg to bind, a splash of vanilla extract. The dough comes together beautifully, yet soft and is left to chill. Once chilled the cookie dough is rolled by hand into balls. These pumpkin spiced balls of cookie dough are completely coated in sugar spiced with cinnamon and ginger.
They’re supposed to be flattened a bit by hand prior to baking. I wanted none of that. I prefer my cookies puff up and look like tiny handheld sugar coated spice cakes.

And that’s what I got. Tiny puffy handheld cakes you pop in your mouth like cookies, FTW. My daughter says that means ‘For the Win’.
My son mentioned these Pumpkin Spice Cookies are best eaten the next day. Apparently he feels pumpkin, zest, and spice need time to seep into each cookie creating this masterpiece of flavor. He wanted me to mention that. I paraphrased.
I think it’s a masterpiece either way, eaten straight out of the oven or three days later.

Pfft… Teenagers…
