Gluten Free Pumpkin Snickerdoodles are like classic snickerdoodles that are transformed into a seasonal favourite with the addition of pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice.
One of my husband’s favourite cookies is the classic Snickerdoodle cookie. I really don’t mind that, since it is such a simple, easy cookie to bake. No special ingredients are needed to bake them, the cinnamon and sugar that coats them is just enough.
These gluten free Pumpkin Snickerdoodles take that same concept, but add some moisture to the cookies with the pumpkin puree, and the addition of nutmeg, cloves, and ginger from the pumpkin pie spice is wonderful.
A moment of confession: I haven’t bought pumpkin pie spice in years. Instead, I make my own. It is really easy to do, and costs a lot less than buying a little tin of pre-blended spice, since I already have the individual spices on hand. You can make your own Pumpkin Pie Spice too, you won’t be disappointed.
Gluten Free Pumpkin Snickerdoodles are great with a hot cup of coffee on a cool fall afternoon, but fancy enough that you can even make them to add to your holiday baking trays. I love that they are an economical cookie to make compared to some others. Sometimes holiday baking can be quite costly when you need special ingredients (caramels, nuts, baking chips, etc).
