Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles – Better Than Certain Coffees and Beers
This is a very unlikely post, considering the fact I’m not a big fan of snickerdoodles, and generally loathe adding pumpkin spice to non-pie things, such as coffee and beer. Despite that, I had a feeling the pumpkin spice would work perfectly with the buttery, cinnamon sugar cookie, and it did. Unfortunately, a quick Google search showed I hadn’t invented it, and there were thousands of variations; from thin and chewy, featuring crisp edges, to much taller, pillowy versions. I decided to go thin, and adapted this snicker doodle recipe, from Averie Cooks . One common denominator was the use of baking soda, plus cream of tartar, instead of baking powder . Since that’s pretty much what baking powder is, I don’t see what the big difference would be either way, but I thought I would mention in case you refuse to go out and buy cream of tartar. Either way, I really hope you give these a try soon. Enjoy! Ingredients for about 18-20 Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles: 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (6 1/2 ounces by weight) 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (1/4 teaspoon fine salt) 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ginger 1/4 teaspoon allspice 1/4 teaspoon clove 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temp 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 large egg For the rolling sugar: 1/4 cup white sugar 2 teaspoons cinnamon *plus a few extra pinches of the pumpkin spices, if so desired For the icing: 1/4 cup powdered sugar stir in enough milk, lemon juice, or other liquid to achieve brushing consistency
