My husband loves ALL things pumpkin so now that it’s finally fall I’m trying to incorporate it in as many recipes as possible.
Since one of his favorite cookies is the snickerdoodle, I decided to use my grandma’s recipe (aren’t grandma’s recipes always the best?) to make these homemade cinnamon and sugar treats. Then I stuffed them full of a delicious pumpkin cream cheese (made up my own recipe).
It’s a perfect fall-inspired treat, great for picnics, a late-night splurge, or a terrific party food.
And, if you’re curious, David LOVED them! We argue about the best way to eat them though: I prefer to dip the cookies in the cream cheese (or just gobble them without anything) but he loved the sandwich.
We also used the left over pumpkin cream cheese on bagels or as a fruit dip. There are so many possibilities!
This is definitely one of my favorite fall recipes!!
