–Soft pumpkin cookies that are slightly spiced and rolled in cinnamon sugar for an extra kick of sweetness and flavor.
This last week has been a doozy. The cold weather is coming on hard and we’re officially fall bound. I wanted a pumpkin cookie to add to my repertoire so I settled on pumpkin snickerdoodles. Not a bad choice if I do say so myself. These cookies are perfect. They’re pumpkin, spice and everything nice.
Now back to this last week being a doozy. My child completed a full week of school. Tiring for both him and myself. He was well behaved though! I destroyed the power steering in our truck. I got to drive my father-in-law’s brand spanking new truck for three days. Score! My father-in-law and hubby fixed the power steering in our truck. The hubby and 4-year-old flew around in a tiny airplane. I spent a load of cash on an orgami owl necklace while the boys were flying around. Now I have the guys out working on tearing a palette apart so I can make the cutest scarecrow craft ever.
Pumpkin and snickerdoodles were meant to be together. Lucian, my crazy boy, loved them so much I found him sleeping with one. I set it on the coffee table and as soon as he woke up, he was eating on it. This is what we call kid approved. That’s big. REAL BIG!

What do you like to drink while eating a stack of cookies? I’m a pretty big fan of coffee myself. The hubs does milk or chocolate milk.
