Picture of Pumpkin SnickerBOOdles
Yummy Pumpkin flavored snickerdoodlish cookies for your Halloween table! 
These are soft and spicy and just pumpkiny enough to please.
This was inspired by several other pumpkin snickerdoodle recipes I read online, but none of them had enough pumpkin pie spice for my taste.. This is my version with the spices kicked up a notch. ( next time, I might add a dash more of each, but I like pumpkin desserts spicy.. )
