OK, I have to give Doris a HUGE Thank You!!! This cookie combines my love of pumpkin with my love of Snicker Doodles and it is my new favorite holiday cookie recipe! The kids love them too. Surprisingly, they like them more than the iced ones.

Yummy! I doubled the recipe and made them without the eggs (for my allergy-sensitive little guy) I added an extra 1/2 c pumpkin instead of the eggs. They set up nicely and tasted wonderful. And the house smells so great now! Thanks for sharing!!!
