Pumpkin Spice Snickerdoodles



After making the Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies, I decided to continue on with the fall baking. I had purchased some pumpkin spice Hershey's Kisses the day after Halloween, you know, when everything is 50% off, so I decided to find a recipe to use them in.

I had everything on hand for snickerdoodles and since I've never made them before, I thought it'd be a great time to try!

One mistake I made with this recipe was I used margarine instead of real butter. Don't do that. It causes the dough to become too sticky to roll in the cinnamon sugar mixture. I ended up freezing the dough and coating my hands in flour in order to get the dough to form. The second mistake was I did not allow the cookies to cool enough before placing the Kisses on top. This caused them to melt a little bit.

Despite these two mess-ups, the cookies turned out really great and were perfect with the spiciness of the Hershey's Kisses!
