You can feel it in the air…the temperature is changing, the leaves are just starting to turn, and suddenly you start craving the flavors of Fall. It’s officially PUMPKIN SEASON!!!
Did you know that canned pumpkin is a great substitute for egg in many recipes? Simply replace the egg with 1/4 cup pumpkin puree.
If the recipe is calling for more than three eggs, then the egg is most likely needed for the texture or as a binding agent. With recipes that contain less than three eggs, you can easily make the swap.
This got me thinking…what’s a better fall treat than a snickerdoodle? How about a PUMPKIN SNICKERDOODLE!?!?
For this recipe, I have included both a written version below, and a quick video HERE.This recipe uses just 4 ingredients, so you can mix it up in no time!One of the things I love most about Tastefully Simple products are that they are so versatile! The Cinnamon Muffin Melt box has the recipe for traditional Snickerdoodles right on the back, and there are currently 28 different recipes on the TS website for this product.This single box produced 36 cookies, so with the added ingredients we made these cookies for right around $3 a dozen! That’s just 25 cents a cookie!From start to finish, it only took 15 minutes, so anytime you get a pumpkin craving and want to satisfy it with a cinnamon-y treat, just whip up a batch!Josh and Chase have both agreed that these cookies are FANTABULOUS!!! Well, I think Chase said something more along the lines of “Make more of these”, but I took it as “FANTABULOUS”!They are DE-LISH hot from the oven, and since we are not huge sweet-eaters, these have lasted 3 days and they are still moist and yummy!The white chips really added nice texture and the flavor mingled perfectly with the cinnamon and pumpkin!

Pick up a few boxes of Cinnamon Muffin Melts on my TS website.
These will be made over and over and over again at this house, and they will probably be my go-to cookie anytime I need to bake & take something to a party.
