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.. )

Step 1: What you need:

  • 1 1/2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon  
  •  1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • Red and yellow food coloring

For the sugar coating
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • A dash of nutmeg
  • a dash of allspice
An oven preheated to 350
a mixer
