Easy Pumpkin Snickerdoodle Cookies. The kids have off school here the next two days. ¬†I am super excited for a nice, long, 4 day weekend. ¬†My son has two flag football games on Sunday, and Friday night we have movie night with my husband‚Äôs work. ¬†Should be nice to relax and just spend time with my 7 year old the next couple days. ¬†We may have to get in the kitchen and start working on some Halloween treats! ¬†
But even if the weather doesn‚Äôt cooperate, these cookies will be sure to put you in a good mood. ¬†My friend, Roxana first turned me on to these Pumpkin Spice Hershey Kisses. ¬†I didn‚Äôt realize they existed, and immediately added them to my shopping list. ¬†One of my favorite Christmas cookies, is Peanut Butter Blossoms. ¬†You know those peanut butter cookies with chocolate kisses in the center. ¬†I thought these kisses would be perfect for a fall version of this cookie.
Snickerdoodles seemed like the perfect thing to pair with these kisses. ¬†I have made Snickerdoodles before, but I wanted a version that were super thick and fluffy. ¬†So I set out to find the perfect recipe. ¬†Thanks to How Sweet It Is, I found it. ¬†The cookies were full of cinnamon, thick, chewy, and the Pumpkin Spice kisses were perfect. ¬†I hope you try these, they really are a wonderful cookie for fall.
